The hackers who are using it could just be having some fun by crashing your PC, deleting some of your files or modifying some data in your system.
Another possible use might be the VIRUS-DISTRIBUTING one. Any malware could be used as an instrument for spreading other versions of malware, most commonly – Ransomware viruses. The role of the malware in this case is to research your system and check for vulnerabilities. Such vulnerabilities may be some programs you haven’t updated for a while, or a non-functional anti-virus tool. As soon as such a weakness has been detected, the Ransomware virus enters your PC, and you will face a complex process of encryption of the data you use most. This is, indeed a terrible possibility, as these two viruses are very hazardous separately. But when combined, the consequences that come as a result of them could be awful beyond words.

This possibility is also one of the most disturbing ones. Hackers may also be using this malware, because they want to CONTROL YOUR PC RESOURCES. By remotely taking over your system, the cyber criminals could exploit it as a spam-spreading point without your stated permission. Such a virus can turn your device into a bot, and use it for mining crypto currencies. However, these criminals may need your PC resources for many more various purposes. As a result of Ndistpr64.sys’s presence, your computer may become an espionage tool.
