Brief Description 

    

Legmir.JA is a Trojan, which although seemingly inoffensive, can actually carry out attacks and intrusions.

 

It captures certain information entered or saved by the user, with the corresponding threat to privacy: passwords saved by certain Windows services.

 

It uses stealth techniques to avoid being detected by the user:

  • It deletes the original file from which it was run once it is installed on the computer.

 

Legmir.JA 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.
