Severe Detected with Windows Defender Antivirus
Aliases: Win32/Haxdoor (CA) Haxdoor.Fam (Sunbelt Software)
Win32/Haxdoor is a family of rootkit-capable backdoor trojans which gather and send private user data to remote attackers. Collected data might include user names and passwords, credit card numbers, bank logon credentials, or other sensitive financial information. Files and processes related to a Win32/Haxdoor infection may be hidden by a kernel-mode rootkit component, detected by Microsoft as WinNT/Haxdoor. Win32/Haxdoor can also disable security-related software and redirect the infected user’s URL connection requests. Depending on the version of the operation system infected, Win32/Haxdoor may perform other malicious actions, such as clearing CMOS settings, destroying disk data, and shutting down Windows unexpectedly.
