Technical Details


Trojan:W32/Bedep is distributed as part of the payload of exploit kits.

Once installed on a device, Bedep creates a hidden virtual desktop that hosts an instance of the Internet Explorer web browser. It then uses this instance to quietly browse websites and generate fraudulent web traffic, without the user's knowledge.

Bedep is also capable of downloading additional malware onto the user's machine.
