Backdoor Detector Apps and Alternatives

Backdoor refers to a method of bypassing normal authentication and gaining access remotely to a computer along with all the data stored inside while remaining undetected. The cryptosystem behind the backdoor can enter your computer by taking the form of an installed program or could be a modification of an application you already installed.

It is worth mentioning that the backdoor itself is not dangerous because it does not duplicate or actively spreads. The modus operandi is that it opens a certain port and provides access to a remote computer in the network to control the PC.

Since it does not affect the normal communication in the network, it is incredibly hard for an IDS or firewall to detect its existence. In addition, the modern ones are often obfuscated code and can be available as unsecured maintenance scripts that are accidentally left behind authorized site maintenance.

According to IT security specialists, finding a backdoor can be done by checking whether the ports known to be vulnerable in this sense are opened or closed. What is worse is that if you detect one backdoor, then there is a high chance that you have other types of malware lurking in your computer.

The good news is that there is some reliable security protection out there that can detect and annihilate backdoors even before they make their way into your computer. Backdoor detection tools are specialized applications that target specific types of malware in this category and that are generally developed as soon as a large scale threat appears.
