File binder

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

File binders are utility software that allow a user to "bind" multiple files together resulting in a single executable. They are commonly used by hackers to insert other programs such as Trojan horses into otherwise harmless files, making them more difficult to detect. Malware builders (such as keyloggers or stealers) often include a binder by default.[1]

A polymorphic packer is a file binder that has the ability to make its "signature" mutate over time, so it is more difficult to detect and remove. It is commonly used by hackers to insert Malware into packages which contain the user content.
