Threat description



The RCServ is a backdoor - hacker's remote access tool. The backdoor consists of a server and of a client part. The server part should be installed on some computer so that a hacker could access it using a client part. The server part provides a hacker with information about an infected system, user actions and it also allows him to get a limited access to data on an infected computer. The RCServ backdoor server allows multiple connections, so several hackers can use the same server at the same time.
