Alert level: Severe Detected with Windows Defender Antivirus

Also detected as: Trojan.Win32.Agent.cubq (Kaspersky) W32/DNSChanger.EOHQ (Norman) (McAfee) Trj/Alureon.BD (Panda) Backdoor.Tidserv (Symantec)

Trojan:Win32/Alureon.gen!U is a generic detection for a component of Win32/Alureon - a family of data-stealing trojans. These trojans allow an attacker to intercept incoming and outgoing Internet traffic in order to gather confidential information such as user names, passwords, and credit card data. The Win32/Alureon trojan may also allow an attacker to transmit malicious data to the infected computer. The trojan may modify DNS settings on the host computer to enable the attacker to perform these tasks. Therefore it may be necessary to reconfigure DNS settings after the trojan is removed from the computer.
