Ldpinch.HZ 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.
Ldpinch.HZ accesses several websites to download files, which it then runs. These can be any type of file, although they are normally malware.
