The trojan was sent in that email as a ZIPped attachment named 'LondonTerrorMovie.zip'. The trojan's file name inside the archive was:

 [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]  " manager" = "%WinDir%\.exe"   

OR

 [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]  " manager" = "%WinDir%\.exe"   

where %WinDir% stands for Windows directory name and <filename> stands for the trojan's file name, for example:

 London Terror Movie.aviChecked By Norton Antivirus.exe

OR
