Once the attached executable file is launched, the trojan creates the following files:

  • %Temp%\1.tmp
  • %System%\pgsb.lto

It also makes changes to the Windows Registry to ensure the installed copy is launched when the computer is started up.

Activity

Once installed on the computer, the trojan opens a connection to a remote server, from which it may download additional malicious programs.
