Know Your Malware: Chast Removal


Chast is a backdoor that provides the attacker with unauthorized remote access to a compromised computer. The intruder can control the infected system and steal user sensitive data. Chast also records user keystrokes, captures online chat conversations and collects system information. It may install a trojan able to hide Chast running processes. The backdoor automatically runs on every Windows startup.
