Technical Details


When run, the trojan installs itself to system. It copies its file as SYSTEM.EXE to Windows System directory and creates the following entry in the System Registry:

[HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"ssgrate.exe" = "%winsysdir%\system.exe"
 

where %winsysdir% is the name of Windows System directory.

The trojan also creates another entry in the Registry where it stores its internal variables.

Then the trojan starts a thread that accesses 15 different websites and opens a PHP page there with certain parameters. This way the trojan reports its ID, proxy port and IP of infected computers to its authors.

After that trojan starts a thread that terminates processes with the following names:

ATUPDATER.EXE
AVWUPD32.EXE
AVPUPD.EXE
LUALL.EXE
DRWEBUPW.EXE
ICSSUPPNT.EXE
ICSUPP95.EXE
UPDATE.EXE
NUPGRADE.EXE
ATUPDATER.EXE
AUPDATE.EXE
AUTODOWN.EXE
AUTOTRACE.EXE
AUTOUPDATE.EXE
AVXQUAR.EXE
CFIAUDIT.EXE
MCUPDATE.EXE
NUPGRADE.EXE
 

The trojan has 3 links in its body that point to a data stealing trojan that is located on 3 different websites. This trojan is detected as 'Trojan.PSW.Ldpinch.as'. The infected files have been recently removed from those website already.

The trojan has a mail relay that functions on the certain port (in the sample we got the port number is 39999).
