Backdoor:Win32/Kanav.D DescriptionType: Adware
Backdoor:Win32/Kanav.D, otherwise known as TrojanDropper:Win32/Kanav.D, is a Trojan that distributes and executes other malware infections on the affected PC. If your computer has been corrupted by Backdoor:Win32/Kanav.D, this indicates that it might also be affected by other computer infections. Once installed on the compromised PC, Backdoor:Win32/Kanav.D makes system changes by dropping infectious files.
Backdoor:Win32/Kanav.D is found as a DLL file with the same name as the Windows system DLL, 'Lpk.dll', which occurs in the [system folder]. Backdoor:Win32/Kanav.D is added to folders which contain executable files that, during the normal course of their operation, load '[system folder]/LpK.dll'. The folders and executable files could belong to installed, genuine applications on the Pcs that are fooled into loading Backdoor:Win32/Kanav.D. When a program strives to load the gneuine 'LpK.dll' file from the [system folder], it loads Backdoor:Win32/Kanav.D instead. This is because a program will search for and load the DLL file in its own folder before it searches for the same-named DLL file in the [system folder]. When a program loads Backdoor:Win32/Kanav.D, it downloads and executes the certain file, found as another malware threat, and sets the file with the 'hidden' attribute. Backdoor:Win32/Kanav.D then loads the original Windows system DLL, as was the purpose of the application.
