Removal

Automatic action

Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.

Suspect a file is incorrectly detected (a False Positive)?

A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:

  • Check for the latest database updates

    First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest detection database updates, then try scanning the file again.

  • Submit a sample

    After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.

    NOTE If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.

  • Exclude a file from further scanning

    If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.

    Note You need administrative rights to change the settings.

Technical Details

Banker.ICS is a trojan-spy that targets banks. It modifies or compromises the original bank's website by injecting additional HTML code.Other capabilities of this malware are keylogging and monitoring the user's Web history. It implements a technique to keylog some banking websites to track whether the user is using a virtual keypad.This malware communicates on the domain directory777.com. On this site, it probably contains an automated code to constantly communicate with the infected system.Each of the infected systems is created with a unique entry in this domain. The logs are also being sent to this domain in the folder "Logs".The main component is the binary executable that may arrive on the system via a drive-by-download or via social engineering tactics.When the main executable file is executed, it drops these two files in the Windows system folder:

  • contrld.dll
  • msft.txt

Contrld.dll is installed as a Browser Helper Object, where most of the malicious routines are located. Msft.txt is an encrypted XML configuration file that contains the configuration and HTML code to inject into the targeted site.The following registry entries are created upon installation of the Browser Helper Object DLL component:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{59D94AAD-0A67-417e-969B-8311296E8364}
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{59D94AAD-0A67-417e-969B-8311296E8364} Default = "Gamburg provider"
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{59D94AAD-0A67-417e-969B-8311296E8364}\InprocServer32 Default = "contrld.dll"
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{59D94AAD-0A67-417e-969B-8311296E8364}\InprocServer32 ThreadingModel = "Apartment"
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{59D94AAD-0A67-417e-969B-8311296E8364}\ProgID Default = "RITLAB.1"
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{59D94AAD-0A67-417e-969B-8311296E8364}\TypeLib Default = "{51BF403F-CB10-4651-97E0-7EAF12BD2011}"
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{59D94AAD-0A67-417e-969B-8311296E8364}

It may also create the following registry entry as part of its installation:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MRSoft

Once the files are installed, the main executable will delete itself and only the remaining file on the infected system is the Browser Helper Object component.Other files may be created by this malware in the windows system folder depending on the configuration:

  • alog.txt
  • bb1.dat
  • boa1.dat
  • cookie1.dat
  • cs.dat
  • di1.gif
