Backdoors are not always meant for authorized usage, isn’t it? Specially when thieves enter? A very similar situation arises every time the name NetBus trojan comes to our mind. To know more, read on.
Not many of us are aware that malware and spyware that we have to often download to safeguard our office computer systems may turn out to be threats worse than viruses for our computers. Yes, with trojans making the rounds, you definitely have a lot to worry about anytime you make a download.
Let’s start the NetBus Story from a historic angle. Remember, set in the wilderness of Troy, the trojan horse was the only great idea that could save the war for Ulysses and his men. Today, every moment seems to be a struggle with destiny, a fight against fate.
Netbus did not ever come to the spot light unless and until in the year of 1999 when a law scholar at the Lund University was caught with child pornographic charges imposed on his shoulders and the best part of the story was that he had absolutely no clue how those objectionable pictures came in his hard drive. He had to give up his job, and lost his research position at the university.
Created in 1998, the NetBus is one of the most controversial programs that can control a MS Windows computer through a network. It offers a backdoor entry to hackers, who can get access to the remote system and can delete or upload files, tamper with data, steal data and even deny the official users’ access to the server.
The first thing to understand here is that the Netbus 1.7 is not a virus, so regular antivirus programs will not save your computer from this deadly hacking system. Netbus 1.7 essentially is a Trojan that can be used to tap into your computer, LAN system and even main servers where it can steal important and confidential data, delete files and basically wreck a lot of havoc.
