VBS.Seeker.F

Discovered:

Updated:

Type:
Trojan Horse

This Trojan horse creates the file \Windows\AboutBlank.htm. It then changes the Internet Explorer home page to that file, so that it is executed when you start Internet Explorer.

The AboutBlank.htm is an HTML file that contains JavaScript. This script opens the original Internet Explorer home page. This is done to disguise the actions of the Trojan, which then runs in the background and attempts to contact the hacker who created it.
