Mal/DarkShell-A is a malware threat that is distributed via a malevolent help (.HLP) file by means of social engineering. Internet users are fooled into opening the malevolent file and, thus, corrupting their PCs with a spyware keylogger. If the infected file is opened, an error message is shown. In the background, another malicious file is downloaded onto the computer system, which in turn creates one more dangerous file. Mal/DarkShell-A records keystrokes of the computer user and transmits them to cybercrooks.
