Alert level: Severe
Win32/Sdbot is a family of backdoor Trojans that allows attackers to control infected computers. After a computer is infected, the Trojan connects to an internet relay chat (IRC) server and joins a channel to receive commands from attackers. These commands can instruct the Trojan to spread to other computers and can allow attackers to perform other backdoor functions, such as launching denial of service (DoS) attacks and retrieving system information from infected computers.
