Bebloh is a banking Trojan that reconfigures your PC to allow for the theft of information related to your bank accounts, along with the possibility of third parties using Bebloh for other, equally illicit purposes. Since Bebloh is a high-level threat with multiple avenues for attacking any Windows PC, you should remove Bebloh with dedicated anti-malware software while taking into account the potential for its installing additional threats. While not mandatory, malware researchers also would recommend your contacting your bank on any extra steps to take for preserving your account's safety.

Bebloh: Exploring Your Bank Account through Internet Explorer

Bebloh is a multifaceted threat that includes functions for downloading other threats and opening backdoor connections to multiple servers. However, these side functions are primarily support for Bebloh's central attacks, which focus on subverting your Web-browsing experience in ways that directly compromise your bank accounts or their funds. In this respect, Bebloh takes the unusual step of specializing in Internet Explorer, and may force your PC to launch IE whenever you try to launch a different browser (such as Opera or Chrome).

Similar to other, specialized financial Trojans like Cridex, Bebloh targets the websites of a relatively small range of banks. Nevertheless, this 'small' number is estimated to have an upper threshold of roughly one hundred different entities. Bebloh monitors your browser for keywords associated with these banks, and automatically records entered passwords, account names and other login data.

Besides giving third parties the means by which to abuse your bank accounts personally, Bebloh also may be used to transfer funds from those accounts. Bebloh's backdoor connection, which transfers commands from remote attackers automatically, provides instructions for this attack on a manual basis.

Exploring a Proper Resolution to Bebloh Attacks

Unlike some banking Trojans, which show symptoms within your browser, Bebloh doesn't inject additional HTML content that could allow perceptive victims to identify its attacks. However, you may identify Bebloh when attempts to launch other browsers redirect you to Internet Explorer. Changes to the Windows Internet Settings also may prevent you from using a proxy service. Finally, accompanying Registry modifications also are made during Bebloh's installation and will need to be removed when you remove Bebloh.

Deleting Bebloh with anything less than competent anti-malware software is discouraged, as malware experts rate the probability of Bebloh's being linked to other threats on the infected PC to be relatively high. Although Bebloh doesn't disable anti-malware tools automatically, Bebloh may be instructed to do so through its backdoor connection, or install other threats with additional, anti-security features. However you choose to uninstall Bebloh, care should be taken to secure any leaked passwords or other information associated with your bank accounts.

Bebloh most often targets German bank users and associated websites, such as those designated with the domain suffix '.de'.
