Jeem is a backdoor that allows hackers to gain remote access to the affected computer in order to carry out actions that compromise user confidentiality and impede the tasks performed on the computer.
Jeem listens to three non-privileged random TCP ports with a port number greater than 5,000.
One of the ports it listens to belongs to the SMTP service. This allows the attacking user to use the affected computer in order to send e-mail messages and launch other types of massive attacks.
Jeem is difficult to recognize, as it does not show any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
