    Backdoor.RemoteNC is a backdoor Trojan that can allow a hacker to gain access to your system. The hacker then can delete, copy or execute files on your computer.

    Type: Trojan Horse
    Infection Length: 143,360 bytes
    Systems Affected: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP


    When Backdoor.RemoteNC is executed it opens a random (usually it is 1025, 1035, 1041, 1047, 1054 , or similar) port and listens for a connection.
    The hacker then can connect and have access to your system to delete, rename, copy, execute and any other commands that can be used by Cmd.exe.

    NOTE: This backdoor Trojan does not function properly on Windows 95/98/Me systems. On these systems it allows a hacker to connect to the infected system, but the hacker cannot send any damaging commands to the infected system. This is because Windows 95/98/Me systems do not use the Cmd.exe file, but instead use the Command.com file. The Trojan is coded to use only Cmd.exe and its commands, which will function only on Windows NT/2000/XP systems.



    Troj/Diablo is a backdoor Trojan horse. If the Trojan server is installed on a computer, it will monitor and log all keyboard keystrokes made by the user.

    The keystrokes are logged into a file which can be sent via email or FTP to the potential attacker. The attacker can be notified by ICQ, when log files are uploaded onto an FTP server.

    The filename and extension used by the Troj/Diablo server are configurable. Possible Troj/Diablo file extensions can be:

    EXE, SCR, PIF, COM, CMD and BAT.

    When the Trojan server is run, it copies itself into the Windows Startup folder so that it automatically runs every time Windows is started.


    Alias: Backdoor.Autoupder , Downloader-W , Win32/Downloader-W.A.Trojan, TROJ_SUA.A , TrojanDownloader.Win32.Minstaller
    Category: Win32
    Type: Trojan

    Win32.MinStaller trojan has the ability the install, run and delete files on a user's computer via scripting directives which are stored on an external site.

    The initial component (mnsvc.exe) downloads a program (ausvc.exe) which auto-updates various components as directed.

    Currently the trojan can install the following files on a user's harddisk:

    ausvc.exe (Auto-Updating component)
    absr.exe (Browser Helper Object)
    bvt.exe (Browser Helper Object)
    mbtcd.bak (data file)
    ea.bin (data file)
    pl.dat (data file)
    undo.exe (Uninstalls the trojan and all components)

    Users Note: The trojan follows directives for the installation, retrieval and removal of files that are stored externally on a website (where the content is liable to change). Hence it is possible that the functionality of the trojan may also change according to what content is downloaded and installed on the affected machine.
