Dropper (malware)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A dropper[1][2] is a kind of Trojan that has been designed to "install" some sort of malware (virus, backdoor, etc.) to a target system. The malware code can be contained within the dropper (single-stage) in such a way as to avoid detection by virus scanners or the dropper may download the malware to the target machine once activated (two stage).[failed verification]
