G Data has warned of a Trojan called IcoScript. This malicious program infects the victim through Internet Explorer. But its real danger is in the way it communicates with the cybercriminal’s server to receive orders to control the computer. And it is that IcoScript is capable of using a webmail platform such as Gmail, Outlook or Yahoo Mail to communicate with the malicious server. The problem is that on many occasions companies do not restrict access to this type of website and even promote them as a work tool.
Once inside, the Trojan could execute various malicious commands on the PC without the user noticing, from stealing personal data to installing other malicious programs. However, the great danger of IcoScript is the way in which it communicates with the cybercriminal’s server to carry out its actions. And it is that this program is capable of taking advantage of web platforms for mail such as Gmail, Outlook or Yahoo!
