Orbit Downloader Contains DDOS Component, ESET Warns

In a major shock, popular Windows app Orbit Downloader has been identified as containing trojan-type software that allows users' PCs to be used in 'DDOS' attacks online.

Security experts at ESET discovered the secret functionality built in to Orbit during a routine check. When run, Orbit Downloader silently connects to the internet and downloads config files. These files in turn instruct the computer to connect to web addresses. When such connections are attempted from millions of PCs simultaneously, they can cause a website's servers to collapse and effectively shut that site down.

Softonic's security analysis also detected the threat and we have deactivated the download options for Orbit Downloader until further notice. We recommend that if you have Orbit Downloader installed, you should stop using it for the moment, and consider uninstalling the program until a safer version is made available.

At least a couple of threads covering this topic have been created on the official Orbit Downloader forum, but so far there’s no response from the developer.

Popular file download sites BetaNews, DownloadCrew, Softpedia, MajorGeeks and Softonic have all removed Orbit Downloader from their sites
