Trojan.Otlard.B is a backdoor Trojan that creates security vulnerabilities to let criminals control your PC. Computers that are infected by Trojan.Otlard.B may not show any visible symptoms due to Trojan.Otlard.B’s ability to infect baseline Windows memory processes. Trojan.Otlard.B will also hide its files in your Windows directory and can allow a wide range of remote-based attacks to occur. Delete Trojan.Otlard.B from your computer the instant you notice this backdoor Trojan, but the use of an anti-malware or security program is strongly recommended.
Trojan.Otlard.B: a Fake System File with Real Consequences
Trojan.Otlard.B was seen in 2010 but remains in circulation as a threat in 2011. Different variations of the Otlard Trojan have also been noticed, such as TrojanDropper:Win32/Otlard.A, Trojan:WinNT/Otlard.B, Backdoor:Win32/Otlard.A and TrojanDownloader:Win32/Bredolab. All of these Trojan threats, including Trojan.Otlard.B are either Trojan droppers or backdoor Trojans, many of which can use rootkit techniques to conceal their activities.
Trojan.Otlard.B itself can also be detected by the aliases Trojan.Win32.Sasfis.anna or simply Trojan Horse.
Symptoms related to a Trojan.Otlard.B infection are minimal, and you shouldn’t expect to see obvious signs of Trojan.Otlard.B on your PC. However, all Trojan.Otlard.B infections will attempt to place a malicious ‘msxsltsso.dll’ file on your computer. The location of the Trojan.Otlard.B file will vary slightly based on which version of Windows is installed; Winnt\System32 and Windows\System32 are two confirmed Trojan.Otlard.B locations.
In addition to hiding its file components in important locations, Trojan.Otlard.B will infect natural Windows memory processes like ‘svchost.exe’ to make it difficult to determine when Trojan.Otlard.B is active. Ordinarily, multiple svchost.exe processes are active, but you may be able to identify a Trojan.Otlard.B process by checking the amount of Memory Usage in Task Manager.
The Final Injury That Trojan.Otlard.B Adds to Its Insult
Trojan.Otlard.B’s primary duty is to create security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by remote criminals.
- The installation of other harmful programs, especially Remote Administration Tools, spyware like keyloggers or rogue security applications. Typically, such threats attempt to steal money, passwords and other sensitive information. They may directly record keyboard input and other data or attempt to swindle you into giving away your money and information of your own free will.
- Disabled applications and services. Trojan.Otlard.B may block Task Manager, Windows Update and other vital Windows OS programs, or well-known anti-virus and security-related applications. These programs may even emit fake infection warnings when you try to access them.
- Trojan.Otlard.B may force your PC to participate in DDoS attacks and other crimes. This level of control exerted over your computer can use significant memory and other resources and may harm your system performance.
- System files and other important components may be deleted to harm your PC.
Many of these attacks can be reversed if you remove Trojan.Otlard.B with the proper security software and act quickly. However, the longer you allow Trojan.Otlard.B to remain on your PC, the greater the danger of irreparable harm is.
