Technical Details


Installation to the System

When run, Bifrose.SN copies itself under %SysDir% directory using the name winampxp.exe. It installs the following registry key to make sure it will be executed next time the system is started:

  • [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]"startkey" = "winampxp.exe"
Backdoor Functions

After the installation, Bifrose.SN tries to locate a web browser and inject code into it. The injected code is the actual backdoor. The backdoor starts to communicate with the following servers using a specially crafted HTTP queries:

  • bfrost.gardenparadise.co.uk:4444
  • zingg.no-ip.org:4444
  • zingg2.no-ip.org:4444

The servers can instruct the backdoor to execute the following actions:

  • Basic file operations (copy, delete, rename, find, execute)
  • Download/upload files
  • Process operations (list, kill)
  • Registry operations (create/delete keys/values)
  • Create screenshots of the desktop
