Speaking of the task of this infection, we can’t really tell you the exact goal that it may be after. This Trojan is a rather new representative of its respective malware family and the information about it is still not sufficient enough. These types of malware programs are unlike other kinds of malware in the sense that their abilities may be highly varied and multi-functional. Other threatening malware programs like Ransomware or Rootkits usually have their purposes limited to only one or two tasks that those infections are supposed to complete. For instance, a Ransomware cryptovirus would use its advanced encryption to make its victim’s data inaccessible and would then request a payment for the locked data’s liberation – but it wouldn’t normally do anything else. A Rootkit, too, would only be used to complete a single goal, that goal being to block the user’s security software. Aside from that, it wouldn’t do much else. With Trojans like Win.Exploit.CVE_2019_0903-6966169-0, Cve-2019-0708 BlueKeep, however, things tend to be rather different – these infections are well known for how versatile they can be and how many different types of harm they may be able to cause.

The computers from the botnet could be used for large-scale criminal tasks like Denial of Service attacks, cryptocurrency mining, spam online message campaigns and many more.
- Some Trojans are basically tools similar to Spyware in the sense that they can monitor your virtual activities and then report the gathered information to their creators. Needless to say, the acquired info could then be used in all kinds of insidious ways.
- A big number of Trojan Horse infections are used as tools for backdooring Ransomware and other infections inside the computers of the users they have attacked. In such cases, it is the delivered infection that usually carries out the main criminal task, with the Trojan being a secondary threat.
- Since the examples above were only that, examples, there could be many, many more potential ways in which Win.Exploit.CVE_2019_0903-6966169-0 Virus or another similar infection could be used by its makers.
