JS:Banker-IC is a Java-based banking Trojan that monitors your web-browsing activities and intercepts confidential information that’s transmitted to bank websites. This can result in identity theft, unauthorized online transactions and other exploits that misuse your personal information for criminal profit. Although JS:Banker-IC should be, like most banking Trojans, a high-level PC threat, SpywareRemove.com malware analysts have found relatively few symptoms of JS:Banker-IC’s attacks, which may be undetectable without an appropriate anti-malware program that can catch and warn against JS:Banker-IC mid-heist.
From the Browser to Your Bank with JS:Banker-IC
Although recent reports of JS:Banker-IC infections are fast-becoming widespread, SpywareRemove.com malware research team hasn’t yet defined JS:Banker-IC’s infection vectors. Nonetheless, circumstantial evidence points to JS:Banker-IC being installed by a separate Trojan downloader that is, itself, installed by exploits hosted on malicious or hacked websites. This Trojan downloader is also likely to delete itself after it installs JS:Banker-IC, leaving no traces behind for you to detect JS:Banker-IC’s presence or attacks.
In some cases, JS:Banker-IC or related PC threats may cause your web browser or OS to crash, although these symptoms have only occurred in a minority of JS:Banker-IC attacks.
How JS:Banker-IC Can Be Everywhere at the Same Time
Because JS:Banker-IC is a relatively new PC threat that may be concealed by related Trojans or rootkit components, you should make sure that your anti-malware software is updated and that all PC threats are deactivated before you scan your computer. Deactivating PC threats to remove JS:Banker-IC can be accomplished by booting from a removable media device or, in some cases, by booting with Safe Mode. However, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers emphasize that deleting JS:Banker-IC quickly is necessary for your PC’s privacy, since information that’s stolen by JS:Banker-IC will remain so even if JS:Banker-IC is removed afterwards.
