Litmus.20 is a backdoor type Trojan that allows a hacker to gain access to the affected computer’s resources through a TCP/IP connection (the Internet or a intranet).
Litmus.20 consists of two programs:
- Server: This is installed on the affected computer. This program is run using stealth techniques, so that the user of the affected computer does not realize that it is running.
- Client: This is installed in the hacker’s computer.
The connection between these two programs allows the hacker to gain remote access to the resources of the affected computer.
Litmus.20 is difficult to identify, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate that it has infected a computer.
