Infostealer.Bancos!gen is a generic detection for malware that gathers confidential financial information from the compromised computer.
These Trojans vary in their sophistication but they typically attempt to run undetected on the compromised computer and collect as much personal information as possible. The information collected may include details about the computer that the Trojan is installed on and also personal online login credentials for financial institutions.
The Trojan is most often spread by way of an email containing a social engineering trick such as a fake email from a bank asking the user to run the attached program and perform some other actions to verify their banking details. If the user complies with the request they could potentially reveal their account access information which may lead to significant financial loss.
The Trojan uses various icons including those from well known applications to disguise itself.
If a Symantec antivirus product displays a detection alert for this threat, it means the computer is already protected against this threat and the Symantec product will effectively remove this threat from the computer.
