Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug. 6 /Trend, H.Valiyev/
Azerbaijan ranked the fifth amongst the countries where a broad penetration of the Trojan program of Win32/Hodprot was recorded since the beginning of the year, the ESET Company reported.
Trojan Win 32/Hodprot has been designed for download to computer for various malicious software aimed at remote banking services.
The first three countries, who have infected with Trojan Win 32/Hodprot, include Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, where there is also the activity of other families of banker Trojans.
This is connected primarily with the use of the same banking software in these regions.
According to the data provided by the Center of virus research and analytics of ESET Company, the most serious cyber threats for both home users and for businesses are malware designed to steal funds.
Unlike its analogs, which immediately after downloading and running malicious programs deletes itself or become inactive, Win 32/Hodprot is designed for long-term presence in the system. Due to many components introduced in the system during installation of the trojan, it can stay unnoticed for a long time.
