This program belongs to the family of password-stealing Trojans.
When activated, the Trojan installs itself to the system. While installing, the Trojan copies itself to the Windows or Windows system directory and registers itself in the system registry auto-run section. For example:
The installed Trojan file name, the target directory and registry key are optional. They are stored in encrypted form in the Trojan file at the file end.
The Trojan then registers itself in the system as a hidden application (service), and the Trojan’s process at this time is not visible in the task list. The Trojan also can drop an additional DLL library to intercept keyboard entries and to store these entries.
Being active in the system, the Trojan periodically sends e-mail messages to its host (hacker’s e-mail address, which is also optional). The message contains the following: computer information (owner, Internet address, etc.), RAS information, cached passwords (login name and password) as well as text strings that are entered by a user during a Windows session.
