Parent class: TrojWare

Trojans are malicious programs that perform actions which are not authorized by the user: they delete, block, modify or copy data, and they disrupt the performance of computers or computer networks. Unlike viruses and worms, the threats that fall into this category are unable to make copies of themselves or self-replicate. Trojans are classified according to the type of action they perform on an infected computer.

Class: Trojan-Spy

Trojan-Spy programs are used to spy on a user’s actions (to track data entered by keyboard, make screen shots, retrieve a list of running applications, etc.) The harvested information is then transmitted to the malicious user controlling the Trojan. Email, FTP, the web (including data in a request) and other methods can be used to transmit the data.

This Trojan uses spoofing technology, and appears to be an HTML page. It is designed to steal confidential information from eBay users.

It is sent out in the guise of an important message from eBay.

The message contains a link which utilizes the Frame Spoof vulnerability in Internet Explorer.

When the user clicks on the link, it leads to a spoofed page. If the user enters his/ her account details, they will be sent to the remote malicious user, who will then be able to access and change the user's profile.

The Frame Spoof vulnerability (MS04-004) is present in Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 5.x and 6.x. Microsoft has published a document which details the vulnerability and gives recommendations on how to identify spoofed links.
