The Berbew family of Trojans retrieves passwords stored on an infected system and sends them to a remote Web server. It also acts as a Web proxy, which allows attackers to use the infected system as a relay for remote access to other systems. Users can become infected with Trojans like Berbew in a number of ways: opening unknown e-mail attachments, running downloaded programs, using peer-to-peer file sharing programs.
