Monlater is a trojan that detects AppServer.exe processes and uninstalls a package with certain UID from an infected device.
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.
Monlater.A contains a function that allows it to detect AppServer.exe processes and uninstall a package with UID 0x20042EB8 from an infected device. Similar functionality is also found in a later variant, Monlater.B, but uses a different file name and UID.
Upon further inspection, samples in the Monlater family show a lot of similarities with those from another family - Monsoon, which was discovered in early 2011. It is highly likely that Monsoon and Monlater connect to the same command and control (C&C) server. The same update channel may also have been used to push new versions of malware and hide the original ones to avoid detection.
