Trojan horse Patched_c.xlt is a nasty Trojan with backdoor capabilities that open network ports to download additional malware threats onto the infected computer in the background. Once executed, it begins its attack immediately. It may result in serious Internet connection or unstable PC performance issues once executed.
This malicious Trojan inserts itself in the process called services.exe, letting itself disguise as a legit system file to escape from the detection of your Antivirus. It will create a backdoor and connect to a remote server, allowing a remote attacker to gain control on the compromised computer. In addition, it changes your system settings, registry settings, browser settings randomly, and even disables your Windows Task Manager and other normal program functions. Users who installed AVG can detect this nasty Trojan. However, each time when it says the virus is resolved and after restarting or opening task manager, AVG pops it up again.
