What is BS2005?

There are always infections that are hard to pin down. When a malicious program has an interface, it is easier to notice that it is there on your computer. However, when you get infected with the likes of BS2005, it might take a while before you even realize that something is wrong with your system.

To mitigate the damage that such infections cause, it is necessary to implement regular system scans with a reliable antispyware program. This way, you would be able to detect infections like BS2005 immediately, and then remove them no questions asked.

Where does BS2005 come from?

BS2005 is a Trojan infection, and so it uses the usual Trojan distribution routes. Probably, the most common Trojan distribution route is phishing emails. Phishing emails often come with attached files that either carries the infection payload, or they download the infection upon the system when users open those files. As far as BS2005 is concerned, it usually exploits the CVE-2015-2545 vulnerability to affect these systems. This vulnerability was first discovered four years ago in September 2015. Normally, such old problems should be fixed by now, but there are always users who employ old software versions (especially if they are illegal), and so the vulnerabilities remain thus exposing them to potential threats.

Consequently, there are several ways to prevent BS2005 from entering your system. You can learn more about Trojan distribution patterns, so you could notice signs that say you are targeted by a phishing attack. Normally, it should be possible to delete a phishing email without too much trouble. As long as you do not click the links in the email or do not open the attached file, BS2005 and other similar intruders shouldn’t reach you. If you must, you can always scan the attached file before opening (just in case you think that the file could be legitimate).

Also, keeping all of your software applications up-to-date should be your top priority. We do realize that some users might be unwilling to update their software when new features seem annoying or inconvenient. But updates are not just about features and app design. Updates also carry fixes and patches that make sure the most recent vulnerabilities have been dealt with. Thus, it is vital that the automatic update feature is enabled.

What does BS2005 do?

Trojans often have a wide range of functions, and we can only guess what a particular infection does on the compromised system. Whatever BS2005 performs on your system depends on its C2 (command and control center). The infection establishes connection with its C2 behind your back, and it is very often that it is hard to notice the information traffic between the infection and its C2 because it is obfuscated. Also, it is very common that a Trojan is used as a complimentary part of some other infection, so if you have BS2005 on your computer, it is very likely that there are more dangerous programs on-board.

As far as our research suggests, BS2005 can collect information on your system. It can also read, write, and delete files and folders, and run Shell commands. So it can collect information about your system and about your data, and then the Trojan can share that information with its C2. It wouldn’t be surprising if this infection could also receive data from its owners to perform more actions on your computer. To put it simply, BS2005 is basically an invisible infection, but it can launch a lot of annoying and illegal acts that could eventually result in data theft or a computer shutdown. Also, the Trojan could make your computer into an interim station for some other infection before it reaches its main target.

How do I remove BS2005?

Needless to say, you need to remove BS2005 at once. It looks like the manual removal of this Trojan is not too complicated, but it would be for the best to terminate this intruder automatically with a reliable antispyware tool. Why? Because a thorough system scan can find other potential threats and infections, and you definitely need to remove all the potentials threats at once.

After malware removal, protect your system from similar intruders by acquiring a powerful antispyware tool. Also, be sure to remain attentive when you encounter unfamiliar files and other unknown web content.
