Technical Details

This Generic Detection identifies malicious files that create a file directory under the temporary folder:

  • %temp%\E_4 (or %temp%\E_N4)

The newly created folder is used to store the following files, which may be dropped by various malware:

  • %temp%\E_4\krnln.fnr
  • %temp%\E_4\dp1.fne

The dropped files may be loaded in other processes to perform malicious activities.


Notes

Some variants may drop an executable files with random name inside a new created folder:

  • %windir%\system32\[folder with random names]

Some variants from this family are observed to have downloading capabilities.


About Generic Detections

Unlike signature or single-file detections, a Generic Detection does not identify a unique or individual malicious program. Instead, a Generic Detection looks for broadly applicable code or behavior characteristics that indicate a file as potentially malicious, so that a single Generic Detection can efficiently identify dozens, or even hundreds of malware

For more information about Generic Detections, please see Generic Detection description.
