Backdoor.Shatekrat is a backdoor Trojan that opens a back door on the compromised PC. Once run, Backdoor.Shatekrat creates a copy of itself to the particular location on the attacked computer system. Backdoor.Shatekrat also creates the infected files. Backdoor.Shatekrat creates the registry entry so that it can load automatically every time the PC user starts Windows. Backdoor.Shatekrat then opens a back door and enables a remote attacker to obtain access and control to the corrupted PC. Backdoor.Shatekrat may then drop more infected files on to the affected PC, update itself, and steal information from the target computer user.
