Global Threat Bot (GTbot)

What is Global Threat Bot (GTbot)?
The Global Threat Bot, commonly known as GTbot, is an IRC bot and backdoor Trojan. The GTbot is mIRC based and spreads when a user is tricked into downloading what appears to be a software utility (e.g. a disk cleaner).

GTbot is also known as Aristotle or IRC Trojan Aristotles.

After a computer is infected with GTbot, the trojan executes a stealth mIRC client without the knowledge of the user. The attacker could then obtain information about the infected computer and launch a Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack on the infected computer.

Popular filenames for GTbot are: temp.exe,, script.inl, temp.scr, and WHVLXD.DAT.
