    Symantec Security Response - Backdoor.Tkbot

    Backdoor.Tkbot is an IRC-based backdoor Trojan that allows a hacker to gain access to your computer without your knowledge. It allows a hacker to do the following:
    • Gather user and system information
    • Upload files to your computer
    • Download files from your computer
    • Execute programs
    • Attempt to gain root access to another remote computer
    • Use your computer as a drone in a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack against a remote system
    • Scan for other vulnerable systems to be compromised
    • Carry out port scans on the systems to be compromised to determine the running services

    For technical details and removal instructions, consult the Symantec site.
