Technical Details



When run, the trojan hiddenly installs itself to system by copying its file with a random name to Windows System folder and by creating s startup key for that file in Windows Registry. On attempt to terminate its process, the trojan re-installs itself to system with a different name and changes the startup key in the Registry accordingly.
