elf.acbackdoor (Back to overview)


A Linux backdoor that was apparently ported to Windows. This entry represents the Linux version. This version appears to have been written first and the Windows version was ported later, without full functionality. The Linux version offers persistence as well as some process manipulation techniques, though both versions apparently offer the ability to access the command line and execute programs as well as self-update.
