Most Trojans and threats alike are distributed via torrent and other P2P file-sharing web pages, pop-up advertisements, and Spam emails. Thus, our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com advise not to interact with such sites or content if you do not want to put your system at risk by encountering threats like L0rdix unknowingly.

If you have not acquired such a tool yet, we advise you to consider installing it. A trustworthy antimalware tool can both help you identify infected files and warn you about various threats.

How does L0rdix work?

The Trojan can detect if a researcher is using the computer by looking for processes of programs they normally use. Afterward, the malicious application should gather information about the victim’s computer, for example, username, operating system, hardware information, antivirus tool, and so on. If a regular user is using the machine, the hackers behind the malware may start executing various commands. For instance, to attack the user’s browser to steal cookie information, login credentials, etc. All of the stolen information gets placed into a zip archive that L0rdix should send to the hackers’ server.

Furthermore, L0rdix can execute other commands as well, such as to perform DDoS attacks or mine cryptocurrencies. In other words, the cybercriminals can use your computer to generate money for themselves or initiate attacks on various websites. Such activities could require a lot of computer’s resources, and so it is possible the user could notice some change in his device’s performance. If you suspect your machine might have been infected with this Trojan, we recommend removing it at once.
