'Beebone' Computer Virus Lurking In Indian Cyberspace
New Delhi: A new and deadly variant of computer virus called 'Beebone' has been detected in Indian cyberspace and Internet security sleuths have warned users to safeguard their systems against its attack which leads to unauthorized entry of malware.
'Beebone' belongs to the notorious family of Trojan malwares which get a "privileged access" into a users computer by faking its identity and deploying smart and corrupt techniques to attack vulnerable computers.
The latest virus detected on the country's Internet network is so notorious and lethal that it acquires as many as 20 aliases or masks to infect and attack a vulnerable computer system which is low on security features.
"It has been observed that new variants of Trojan win32/Beebone are spreading widely. This is a trojan downloader family which silently downloads and installs other malware and programs without user consent," an advisory issued by the national Internet and computer security sleuths organization, the Computer Emergency Response Team-India (CERT-In), said.
