LNK:Runner-B DescriptionType: Trojan
LNK:Runner-B, otherwise known as the Link Runner Virus, is a Trojan that mainly proliferates via hacked websites. LNK:Runner-B may also be distributed via spam email message containing malicious attachments. LNK:Runner-B uses the scripts to run itself when a recipient opens the malicious email. When running on the targeted computer system, LNK:Runner-B searches for files and folders. LNK:Runner-B copies original files and folders by changing their names to the .LNK files. The legal files and folders are disguised by modifying their attributes to 'System' and 'Hidden'. Changed files and folders remain concealed from victims, urging them to execute malevolent .LNK versions. LNK:Runner-B makes all .LNK files to execute it. LNK:Runner-B may also spread to a network when the malevolent file is executed on connected PCs.
