|Dumador.E is a password stealer with backdoor characteristics. |
Dumador.E uses stealth techniques to get into computers without users realizing. Once Dumador.E has entered a computer, it tries to steal confidential data, such as passwords for different services. Dumador.E will then log this information in a file that it will send to a hacker.
Furthermore, due to its backdoor characteristics, Dumador.E allows hackers to gain remote access to the affected computer. Therefore, hackers will be able to carry out actions that compromise user confidentiality and impede the tasks carried out on the computer.
Dumador.E 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.
