Trojan Horse
Systems Affected:

Backdoor.Tuxder enables the remote attacker to execute commands on your computer.

Once this type of Trojan attacks a computer, it is difficult to determine what else the computer has been exposed to.

In most cases, changes—other than those that the Trojan made—will not have occurred. However, an attacker may have been able to use the Trojan to access the computer to make changes to it.

Unless you can be absolutely sure that malicious activity has not been performed on the computer, we recommend completely re-installing the operating system.
