Technical Details

When executed, Scar downloads the executables listed in the text file from remote servers. The downloaded files are then silently executed in the background. The executables can be trojan-downloaders, trojan-PSWs, keyloggers or monitoring tools, email worms or bots, and so on. Each may have its own payload.
