Backdoor.Briewots.A Description

Type: Backdoors

Backdoor.Briewots.A is the detection for a malicious program and Trojan stalking PC users to open a backdoor and give a hacker remote access. Although its primary goal is to open a backdoor, chances are you unknowingly let Backdoor.Briewots.A inside the front door. Trojans use guises that fool PC users and get them to click blindly on infectious links and attachments. Trojans can also be grouped along with other malware and hidden in the download of freeware.

In addition to opening a backdoor, the Trojan will also carry out other malicious activity, such as opening a port and reporting its findings. A survey of the system will reveal system data that is vulnerable and can help plan future attacks. Vital data will be stolen out of the browser cache and email addresses off the hard drive. A connection to a remote server could serve up more malicious programs, including a rogue security program. Instead of awaiting the Blue Screen of Death due to draining and overload of system resources, the PC user should aggressively find and remove malware, including Backdoor.Briewots.A.

Some malicious programs use a rootkit to mask file names so they appear the same as legitimate OS files and confuse those seeking to remove them. Deleting wrong files could corrupt your system and you might lose valuable data. What is recommended is the use of a stealth anti-malware program to sort out the confusion and permanently erase all malware hidden on your system. Additionally, a stealth anti-malware program can better guard your system going forth.
