Beast, like other remote access Trojans, including Rat.WinSpy, ProRat and NetBus, operates surreptitiously in order to gain as much benefit as possible. So far it has been known that the virus affects such operating systems as Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. The operating of the systems is being impaired by starting new processes and terminating legitimate ones, downloading and installing new files or malware and trying to take complete control over the infected machine. For example, Beast receives commands to do the following: to steal your passwords, make screen captures, corrupt the performance of some software or hardware devices and shut down or restart the computer. Moreover, the infection is able to corrupt present files stored on the PC. For example, it can infect your word documents or even hide them from you to make you think that they have been already deleted.
