Blurax is a backdoor that provides the attacker with unauthorized remote access to the compromised computer. It allows the intruder to download arbitrary files, create and delete folders, search for specific files and execute system commands. Furthermore, the intruder can record user keystrokes and retrieve all information gathered. Blurax uses an integrated rootkit to hide its active services. The backdoor secretly runs as a service on every Windows startup. It also starts in Safe Mode.
