Technical Details


Once the CALC.EXE file is launched it copies itself to the Windows System32 directory under the name DORIOT.EXE and adds Registry keys under:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Run
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Run
 

to ensure the trojan is stared upon reboot. A file named GDQFW.EXE is then dropped onto the Windows System32 directory. This file is then injected into Explorer.exe process space through process memory manipulation. The dropper terminates at this stage.

The injected code from GDQFW.EXE is active while Explorer.exe is active. It performs various tasks which include monitoring various security related update programs and terminating them; checking predefined list of URLs for a particular file and if present - downloading and executing it. It also manipulates with cached URLs on the user's machine.
