Backdoor:W32/Bohu.A, Trojan-Dropper:W32/Bohu.A, Backdoor:W32/Bohu.A, Trojan:W32/Bohu.A, Trojan.Generic.4982818


This program installs various files onto the system. Among the components installed are: a backdoor which connects to an external site to optain updates and other settings; and a component that monitors web traffic to various search engines in China and the domains of certain antivirus (AV) vendors.


Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.

A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:

  • Check for the latest database updates

    First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest updates, then try scanning the file again.

  • Submit a sample

    After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.

    Note: If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.

  • Exclude a file from further scanning

    If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.

    Note: You need administrative rights to change the settings.

Technical Details

The malware is detected as Trojan-Dropper:W32/Bohu.A and is a NullSoft installer that contains the following:

  • uuse-5905.exe
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\dsop7.xml
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\msfsg.exe

Besides installing the files, it also modify the system's IP settings to use DHCP.


This file is an installer of a media player application. This is a decoy installed by the malware to make users think they have installed a valid application.


This file is some sort of utility that is being used by the malware for its different routines.

This utility is able to do the following:

  • append garbage data to the end of a file
  • modify DNS settings
  • compress and uncompress samples

This utility is detected as Trojan.Generic.4982818.


This file is the compressed form of another Nullsoft installer which contains the malicious components of the malware. The installer (setup321046.exe) is extracted by the malware using the msfsg.exe utility.

SETUP321046.EXE contains the following:

  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\dsetup.exe
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\mpflt.inf
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\mpflt_m.inf
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\msfsg.exe
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\newnetgar.dll
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\siglow.dll
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\siglow.sys
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\spass.dll
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\SyssData.bin

After extracting the files, SETUP321046.EXE will use msfsg.exe to append garbage data to the following files:

  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\dsetup.exe
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\newnetgar.dll
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\siglow.dll
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\siglow.sys
  • %ProgramFiles%\baidu\spass.dll

Then it copies the following files:

  • newnetgar.dll -> %System%\nethome32.dll
  • spass.dll -> %System%\netplayone\netplayone.dll

SETUP321046.EXE will create the following registry entries/service:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinSock2\speednet_sph PathName = %System%\netplayone\netplayone.dll
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetHomeIDE

SETUP321046.EXE will then launch DSETUP.EXE to install the following NDIS driver and notify object:

  • siglow.sys -> %System%\drivers\siglow.sys
  • siglow.dll -> %System%\drivers\siglow.dll

SETUP321046.EXE also attempts to change the DNS settings to and using the msfsg.exe utility.
