|Doomber.C is a worm with the characteristics of a Trojan. |
Doomber.C spreads by copying itself, without infecting other files. Its main objective is to collapse computers and networks, preventing users from working with their computers.
Furthermore, due to its Trojan characteristics, Doomber.C allows hackers to get into and carry out dangerous actions in affected computers, such as capturing screenshots, stealing personal data, etc.
It captures certain information entered or saved by the user, with the corresponding threat to privacy:
keystrokes, in order to obtain information for accessing online banking services, passwords and other confidential information.
Doomber.C does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.
