Mal/DarkShell-A Description

Mal/DarkShell-A is a Trojan that is propagates as a mischievous help (.HLP) file via social engineering. Cybercrooks strive to fool victims into

opening the malicious file and, thus, affecting their computers with a spyware keylogger. If the corrupt file is opened, an error message is

displayed. In the background, another infectious file is dropped onto the PC, which in turn creates one more file. Mal/DarkShell-A logs

keystrokes of the PC user and sends them to remote attackers.
