Fareit malware steals login credentials and forwards the information to a remote server. It may also download additional malware onto the affected system.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
Fareit malware is usually delivered as the payload of other malware. These may be distributed via spam email messages, or malicious DNS servers.
Once present on a system, Fareit will steal login and account information from various installed programs, such as FTP or mail clients and cloud storage programs, and passwords stored in the web browser. Stolen information is forwarded to a remote server.
