Helios 2.4. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   | Type: Remote Administration Tools
Helios is a large RAT virus family. Different versions include
different functions, but it is no doubt, that as the number of the
version grows, so do the possibilities of the RAT and the danger of
infection. This version was created in May 2003. The author of this
pest is HelioS. The infection peaked in such countries as Czech
Republic, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States. This
pest was written in Visual Basic. All versions have the abilities to
disable Firewalls and kill Antivirus Protections.

From the publisher:

"File explorerá: Use this to surf on the victimÆs computer. You can
upload and download files, open music files, put a pic as wallpaper,
unreg/reg an ocx/dll, rename folders or files. Reg editorá: Almost the
same as REGEDIT.exe. You can Create/change Key, delete a whole reg
folder and delete a Key/value. Kernel commandá: Easy to use commands,
just read what they do. App Redirectá: ItÆs a MSDOS like, you can use
ipconfig, ping, netstat, well almost all DOS commands (DO NOT use
½ádirá+ or ½ácdá+ commands). Pluginsá: This is for all you coders out
there you can add plugins to the trojan. (Read the other manual about
Plugins to make your own) Spyá: Enum windowsá: Use this to enum all the
windows in use by the victim. You can maximize, minimize, restore,
close, bring to font, hide, show and change the title of every windows.
Have funá! Active Tasksá: Like the WinXP/2k CAD. You can see everything
that is running on the victimÆs comp. You may close them tooá=). Steal
passwordsá: You can steal the victimÆs passes, but for now it works
only on Win98/ME and older. DoesnÆt work for Win2k/XP. KeyLoggerá: The
most useful thing I think. You can see every single key the guy hit,
abcd.. alt, enter, ctrl, etcá! And its placed in a window, where you
may delete and copy stuffs. Then you just copy paste it to a .txt and
save it as a log. Capture Screená: You may capture a bmp/jpg pic of
what your victim can see on his monitor. If you want to be able to
download jpg, you must first check if he has the plugin, otherway
upload itá! Msgá: Msg controlá: You may use this to makes a popup
appear on your victimÆsá!! You can makes every sort of popup, choose
the title and what you want to put in it. You can use Matrix too, your
target will have a black screen and your text in green ( like in matrix
the movieá), btw do not forget to Stop matrix if you want your victim
to be able to see something.. lol. Chat with victimá: The title is
kinda obvious. You can make a window popup on the victimÆs comp and he
canÆt close it. ( it closes when YOU close it. ). Then you can chat
with your victim =)á! Miscá: Misc 1á: Well just open it, it doesnt need
any comment I think. Very funny part of the trojaná! ( You can for
example, disable the mouse, keyboard, hide the startup bar, button and
moreá! ) Misc 2á: Here you can get the resolution of your victim,
change it. Get and change every color of everything on his comp. Get
his computer name and change it ( need the target to reboot to see the
difference ). Otherá: Powerá: Here you can play with Shutdown, Force
shutdown, Reboot, Logoff, Reset and interact with the victimÆs
CDROM(s). You can open and close themá! WinAmpá: You can get the compÆs
PlayList, run his winamp, get a song, starts the AVS, pause/play/change
song and change the volume" Helios 2.4 properties:
