When launched, it creates its copy in the user's home directory. The program uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to communicate with its control server whose address is 184.108.40.206.
How it steals passwordsEdit
BackDoor.Wirenet.1 also operates as a keylogger (it sends gathered keyboard input data to intruders); in addition, it steals passwords entered by the user in Opera, Firefox, Chrome, and Chromium, and passwords stored by such applications as Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and Pidgin. Anti-virus software from Doctor Web successfully detects and removes the backdoor, so the threat does not pose a serious danger to systems protected by Dr.Web for Mac OS X and Dr.Web for Linux.
