Threat Database Trojans Trojan.Dozer


By GoldSparrow in Trojans

Trojan.Dozer is a virus that performs distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. It arrives on a computer via spam email attachment, and once it has entered a computer and become active, Trojan.Dozer attempts to connect to specific IP addresses in order to open a backdoor for an unauthorized remote user to gain access to the system. This may lead to identity theft. Trojan.Dozer also downloads additional malware onto the compromised machine, while trying to replace the master boot record and searching for files with certain extensions, in order to delete the ones it cannot open or that are zero bytes in size.
