Dialer.Win32 Dialer Profile

Win32.Dialer is the root program of a large cross-section of Dialer malwares.  It was first discovered on January 9 of 2001.  Considered the first of the class of malwares called “Trojans,” Dialers have little intent but to bring harm to users.

Win32.Dialer, as most others, is installed on your computer by an ActiveX drive-by download, typically at pornographic or gaming sites.  In fact, many Dialers profess to provide a service connecting the user to “exclusive porn content.”

Win32.Dialer primarily hijacks the computer’s dial-up modem.  It then exploits it to call long distance or “900” phone numbers instead of the users typical Internet service provider.  This can result in enormous phone bills.  The vendor shares in the profits with the phone number’s owner, if they aren’t the owner themselves.

Win32.Dialer can also serve as a component for other Trojans, such as Downloaders and Backdoors.  In this capacity, it provides the connection to the server.

If you find out that you are infected with Win32.Dialer, you should remove it immediately with a reputable antispyware program such as ZookaWare PC Cleaner.  ZookaWare PC Cleaner guarantees 100% removal.
