Spyware Backdoor Virus
Know more about spyware backdoor virus threats
The majority of PC users do not know what a spyware backdoor virus is, let alone the serious security issues they can create for your system, network, and personal information. A “backdoor” is essentially a vulnerability within your system, network or application that allows a hacker to gain unauthorized access to your machine. This creates much vulnerability, allowing the attacker to manage files, access or install software, control hardware devices, reboot or shut down your system, and essentially control your entire system. These backdoor vulnerabilities can also allow attackers to do everything from screenshot capture to keystroke logging, effectively leaving your private data and network security at risk.
Below are a few of the most common spyware backdoor virus threats that can be extremely dangerous to both your PC and Network:
- Remote Connection, that is, RedNeck
- Litebot spyware virus
- Resoil FTP
Remote Connection, that is, RedNeck
One of the most common backdoor viruses is known as “Remote Connection”, but also commonly referred to as “RedNeck”. This is an extremely dangerous attack that can provide an attacker with complete access to your computer. The attacker will be able to record keystrokes, manage files, reboot or shutdown the system, take screenshots, and install applications. We highly recommend taking advantage of comprehensive antivirus program or support for manual removal of the virus. Manual removal of the “Remote Connection” spyware backdoor virus consists of killing the following processes, client.exe, client_setup.exe, get_ip.exe, server.exe, server_setup.exe, followed by deleting the following files, client.exe, client_setup.exe, get_ip.exe, readme.txt, server.exe, server_setup.exe.
Litebot spyware virus
The Litebot spyware backdoor virus is another extremely common threat that allows an attacker to remotely execute and download files over the internet. It also creates vulnerabilities by changing Windows firewall configuration settings. This virus is also often hard to detect as its contents have random files names. The manual removal process of Litebot consists of killing the following processes, photoandarticle.exe, photo and article.exe, followed by deleting the following files, photoandarticle.exe, photo and article.exe, uninst.bat, and deleting the following registry key, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\support-reverse-smileys
Resoil FTP is an backdoor that provides unauthorized access to an infected system or network and runs with a private FTP server which can download your private data as well as upload and spread dangerous files and programs to your system and network. This obviously puts all of your private data and privacy of your entire system at risk. This virus often also leads to overall performance loss and other issues related to applications and overall system performance.
