Trojan.Castdos is a Trojan that performs distributed denial-of-service attacks. Trojan.Castdos will send a large number of DNS requests to a list of DNS servers to perform distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. If the DDoS attacks are successful, PC users relying on those DNS servers will be unable to access any service hosted on the servers. Trojan.Castdos allows attackers to gain full remote access and control of the infected computer.
