DeepThroat

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Searches for the existence of DeepThroat

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
DeepThroat is installed.

This backdoor permits anyone to
partially take the control of
the remote system.

A possible hacker may use it to steal your
password or prevent you from working
properly.

Solution : use regedit or regedt32, and find 'SystemDLL32'
in HKLM\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run
The value's data is the path of the file.
If you are infected by DeepThroat 2 or 3, then
the registry value is named 'SystemTray'.

After cleaning the infected machine, you should manually
find the root cause of the initial infection. Alternatively,
you may wish to completely rebuild the system, as the backdoor
may have been used to create other backdoors into the system.
