Removal

The first variants were added to our defs as early as 2003. However, new variants are created all the time, so new definitions are added continuously. NOTE: Haxdoor is usually protected by rootkit functionality. If installed and running, some components of Lumension's antivirus products may have difficulties detecting the malicious files.
