As part of its installation process, the trojan also injects its code into the legitimate svchost.exe; the injected code will continue to run (download routine) while the code injector (setup routine) will terminate.
Downloads and executes arbitrary files
may connect to a remote server in order to download and execute additional files.
Contacts remote hosts
The trojan may contact a remote host at 188.8.131.52 via HTTP POST in order to send the following information about the infected computer:
- Operating system version information
- Terminal service configuration
- Software restriction policies
- System and desktop configuration
- Network domain and computer name
- Internet Explorer configuration
- List of print jobs in target printers
- Hardware profile for the local computer
- Geographical location of the user
Allows backdoor access and control
can send an HTTP POST request to a remote server, and execute a server-side PHP script, which allows the remote attacker full access and control over the infected computer.
Terminates security processes
The trojan checks for the presence of security software WIRESHARK.EXE, and if found, will terminate this process.
