Dangers Associated with Backdoor:W32/GetShell.A
Like its name indicates, Backdoor:W32/GetShell.A is a backdoor Trojan. These kinds of Trojans receive their name because they make an opening in the infected computer's security which criminals can use to gain unauthorized access to the compromised machine. Much like a real-life open backdoor allows a robber to enter a house without being caught, the backdoor that Backdoor:W32/GetShell.A sets up allows a hacker to gain access to the victim's computer system while bypassing that computer's defense mechanisms. Using Backdoor:W32/GetShell.A, criminals can install other malware on the infected computer (such as a spy Trojan, a remote access tool or a ransomware infection), steal sensitive data or access the infected computer from a remote location.
