This Trojan horse is named Backdoor:W32/Berbew, also known as Backdoor-AXJ, Webber, or Padodor. When this Trojan horse runs on the user's computer, it may perform several actions, including monitoring Internet access to capture sensitive information such as logon names and passwords, or opening fake dialog boxes that prompt the user to enter confidential information such as ATM card codes, credit card numbers, or other confidential information. Microsoft has released a tool to help you remove Backdoor:W32/Berbew Trojan horse variants from your computer.
