Backdoor.Linfo then creates the specific mutex 'ExplorerIsShellMutex' so that only one instance is running on the compromised PC. Then, Backdoor.Linfo opens a back door by connecting to the particular locations

[http://][ENCODED HO[REMOVED] and [http://][REMOVED] and waits for directions from remote hackers. Remote hackers can perform lots of harmful actions such as download an updated configuration file, change the frequency of the intervals in which the computer contacts the remote server, create and delete directories, shut down or restart the targeted machine, log off the current user, execute shellcode, change command and control servers, and other.
