  svchost.com

Name svchost.com

Description

W32/Rbot-EU. Also known as Backdoor.Rbot.gen
It is a worm which attempts to spread to remote network shares.
It also contains backdoor Trojan functionality, allowing unauthorised remote access to the infected computer via IRC channels.
It spreads to network shares with weak passwords as a result of the backdoor Trojan element receiving the appropriate command from a remote user.
W32/Rbot-EU moves itself to the Windows system folder as SVCHOST.EXE and creates the following registry entries:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\Services host = svchost.com
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices\Services host = svchost.com
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\Services host = svchost.com

The worm will also attempt to terminate security related processes as well as processes related to the W32/Blaster family of worms.

Use antivirus (also check How To Remove section)Startup Opimizer for removal.
