Trojan-DDoS.Win32.Dest

Class Trojan-DDoS
Platform Win32
Description

Technical Details

This program attacks a remote host through a third computer
(Distributed DoS-attack). The server part of this program sends itself via any method to a “victim” computer. When run on a “victim” server, the program waits to connect to the client part.
The malefactor uses the client part to locate the IP address host, which he then
attacks. At the malefactor’s command, the server part on the “victim” computer sends an IP 60,000-byte packet to the indicated address. If the attacked computer
contains a mistake in the riding-crop IP, the result crashes the system. In this way, the malefactor remains unnoticed, because it attacks a “victim” computer.
