A security issue has been reported in Energizer DUO Charger Software, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The security issue is caused due to a backdoor (Arucer.dll) placed in the Windows system32 directory by the installer software. This can be exploited to e.g. send and receive files or execute arbitrary code on an affected machine via commands sent to port 7777/TCP.
NOTE: The backdoor is configured to start automatically on system start.
Solution: Uninstall the software and remove "Arucer.dll" from the Windows system32 directory.
