Name sndloader.exe


W32/Agobot-BV is an IRC backdoor Trojan and network worm.
It spreads to computers on the local network protected by weak passwords.

Copies itself to the Windows system folder as sndloader.exe and creates the registry entries to run itself automatically on startup:
and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices\
Sound Loader = sndloader.exe

On NT based versions of Windows the worm creates a new service named "Sound Loader" with the startup property set to automatic, so that the service starts automatically each time Windows is started.

Each time W32/Agobot-BV is run it attempts to connect to a remote IRC server and join a specific channel.
W32/Agobot-BV then runs continuously in the background, allowing a remote intruder to access and control the computer via IRC channels.
W32/Agobot-BV attempts to terminate and disable various security-related programs and attempts to prevent its own process from being deleted.

Use antivirus (also check How To Remove section)Startup Optimizer to remove it from startup.
