It is hard to say how exactly FireBird RAT slithered into your operating system because this malware can be controlled by hundreds of people in hundreds of ways at the same time. That is because the RAT is sold online, and you too could purchase it to perform attacks against other people. Of course, we hope that you will do no such thing. Once the RAT is purchased, it is up to the person in control to decide how it spreads. Some might choose to use the help of malware-dropping trojans. Others might use exploit kits that are built to exploit unpatched vulnerabilities within the system, security software, or installed apps. FireBird RAT could also be spread via bundled downloaders and spam emails that are made to look harmless. The ultimate goal is not to alert the victim so that the infection could stand a chance of slithering in. Unfortunately, this malware also has abilities to circumvent detection by antivirus tools in some cases, and so if your system’s protection is not strong enough, the RAT could slither in unnoticed.
Once inside the targeted system, FireBird RAT can do many things. It can disable the Task Manager and Registry Editor, hijack the mouse, the web camera, and the microphone, remove other applications, turn your computer on or off at random times, play audio, open the CD drive randomly, screenshot emails, log keystrokes to steal passwords and login credentials, copy the text in the clipboard, gather computer info, and even enable hackers to control miners, among other things. This means that FireBird RAT can be used to spy on people, gather sensitive data, and even exploit CPU to mine cryptocurrency. Basically, the infection enables cybercriminals to take full control of your operating system, and what they do with this power depends on their goals. Do they want to blackmail you using video and audio recordings? Do they want to hijack your online banking and social networking accounts? Do they want to spread malware from your system? Do they want to make money using your recourses? The possibilities are endless, and that is what makes this trojan so incredibly dangerous. We hope that you manage to delete it in time.
There are two components that you need to delete if you want to have FireBird RAT removed.
