Symantec Ramnit Removal Tool helps remove this worm that spreads through removable drives adding a back door, stealing passwords and monitoring activities.
What it does:
The primary function of this threat is to steal information from the compromised computer. It does this by downloading various modules that can perform the following tasks:
Steal cookies to hijack online sessions for banking and social media websites. The threat steals cookies from the compromised computerâ€™s browsers, stores them in archive files, and sends them to the C&C server.
Steal login credentials for a large number of FTP clients.
Monitor a victimâ€™s frequently visited websites, including online banking websites. When the threat recognizes that a victim is on a specific site, it will act as a man-in-the-browser (MITB) and inject code into the web page. It will then request that the user submit sensitive information that is not normally submitted to a bank during login. The attacker can then use this information to access the victimâ€™s credit cards and bank accounts.
Give the attacker remote access to the compromised computer.
Steal files from the compromised computer. The threat scans for specific folders or files that may contain login credentials and then archives them, and sends them to the C&C server.
Allow the attacker to remotely connect to the compromised computer and browse the file system through an anonymous FTP server. The FTP server lets the attacker upload, download, and delete files, and execute commands.
The threat will also write a copy of the installer to the computerâ€™s file system and store a copy of itself in memory. This allows the threat to be dropped back onto the file system and executed again if the compromised computerâ€™s antivirus software detects and deletes the threat, or quarantines it.
It will also open a back door and connect to a C&C server so it can receive commands and request the modules that are used to steal information from the compromised computer. The commands that the threat can receive include capturing screenshots, uploading cookies, gathering computer-related information and deleting root registry keys to prevent the computer from starting up.
