Illegal keygen for well-known AV solution leads to infection

An illegal key generator for the recently released latest version of the TrustPort Internet Security solution brings big trouble to unsuspecting users, warns BitDefender.

Bundled with the keygen is a Trojan that injects itself into explorer.exe and adds a list of exceptions to the locally installed firewall, in order to finally deploy a backdoor on the targeted computer.

This Trojan is capable of doing many, many things: stealing passwords cached in a variety of web browsers and information regarding Internet banking and online financial transactions, recording video and audio streams generated by the computer’s webcam and logging conversations executed via IM applications and social networks.

Finally, it is also capable of downloading a great many other malicious software, including the Zeus Trojan and a number of Remote Administration Tools (RATs).

The keygen in question is equipped to spread via a variety of means: IM services, email clients, P2P sharing and USBs, so be extra careful.
