Technical Details


Technically. Agent.D's executable file is an HTML Application (HTA file). This file type is normally run by the MSHTA.EXE application, a program that comes standard with Windows.

While it is running, Agent.Dhides its window from the user when it is running by resizing the window to a zero size and preventing it from being visible in the Taskbar.

The trojan also drops a file named CMD.BAT into the root directory of the C: drive. This BAT file is used for cleanup purposes only: it deletes the trojan's file from the hard disk.
