Trojan.SymbOS.Skuller

Detect Date 12/04/2005
Class Trojan
Platform SymbOS
Description

This detection is used for a range of files which are included in known modifications of Trojans in the Skuller family.

Files which are detected as Skuller.gen fall into two groups.

The first, more common group includes damaged/ corrupted applications and empty files. Skuller replaces system applications with these files, causing the victim handset to crash.

The second group includes a number of programs which are used to restart the handset. They are all an integral part of known Skuller variants. The programs may be installed by the Trojan to launch automatically; this will cause the handset to constantly be restarted.
