MyAgent: the Agent That Has No Problems with False Pretenses for Sabotaging Your PC
E-mail messages including MyAgent file attachments will attempt to portray MyAgent as some form of ‘harmless’ file format, such as PDF, and observed installers for MyAgent have even been found to launch actual PDF files (such as historical documents entitled ‘Health Insurance and Welfare Policy’) to serve as distractions from their attacks. MyAgent-related installation files dropped on your PC may also be named to look like Adobe installers – one example is ‘Abode32.exe.’ The exploits that are used to install MyAgent require the presence of Adobe software, and, in many cases, may be closed by relevant security patches for Adobe Reader and related programs.
What MyAgent’s Doing While You’re Reading A Little Light History
MyAgent appears to be designed primarily to steal passwords and other confidential information, and MyAgent specifically attempts to plunder the Credentials Store, along with Windows Protected Storage (which stores form-entered passwords that are ‘saved’ via the AutoComplete settings). As a basic precaution against compromised accounts and related information, SpywareRemove.com malware analysts strongly recommend that you change all important passwords after deleting MyAgent with a choice anti-malware product.
However, MyAgent’s attacks can also include other backdoor-related functions, such as installing other PC threats onto your computer or allowing criminals to gain access to your system. Unusually for a backdoor Trojan of its level of sophistication, MyAgent uses hard-coded URLs for its C&C servers, which limits MyAgent’s flexibility significantly. Despite this limitation, SpywareRemove.com malware experts and others in the PC security industry have noted numerous variants of MyAgent that are coded to contact separate C&C servers, which gives MyAgent a certain degree of redundancy.
