Rcerv.C is a backdoor type Trojan that goes memory resident when it is run and allows hackers to gain remote access to computers in order to carry out action that compromise user confidentiality and impede the tasks performed.
The effects of Rcserv.C include the following: close Windows, show message on screens, edit the Windows Registry, flood other systems, copy and delete files, capture keystrokes entered by the user and make them available to the hacker, show or hide the Windows Start button and taskbar, end services and processes, etc.
This Trojan has two modules:
- The server program, which is installed on the affected computer.
- The client program, which is installed on the hacker's computer.
If the Windows Start button or taskbar disappears, the functions of the mouse buttons are switched or if messsages are displayed on screen for no apparent reason, Rcserv.C may have reached your computer.
