Parent class: TrojWare

Trojans are malicious programs that perform actions which are not authorized by the user: they delete, block, modify or copy data, and they disrupt the performance of computers or computer networks. Unlike viruses and worms, the threats that fall into this category are unable to make copies of themselves or self-replicate. Trojans are classified according to the type of action they perform on an infected computer.

Class: Trojan-Spy

Trojan-Spy programs are used to spy on a user’s actions (to track data entered by keyboard, make screen shots, retrieve a list of running applications, etc.) The harvested information is then transmitted to the malicious user controlling the Trojan. Email, FTP, the web (including data in a request) and other methods can be used to transmit the data.

This file is compressed with the PE-Pack utility. It's compressed size is 32,768 bytes and is written in the C programming language. Once the trojan is launched it checks for the presence of the WebMoney program. To do this it looks for the file WMClient.dll in the programs folder and inserts into it new code. The new code creates two files:


The program creates a report file under the name:


Next the Trojan installs itself into the Windows registry auto-run key.

The following strings are contained within the file:

kernel32.dll rock the block c:wmkey.bin c:wmmem.bin

DatabaseOLE false SoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun 
Command line: '%s' - Memory allocation failed + Shutting down

This file is compressed with the PE-Pack utility, It's compressed size is 28,672 bytes and is written in the C programming language. Upon being launched, this file stays in a victim computer's memory and sends out the following files via email:

 "c:wmlog.bin", "c:wmmem.bin", "c:wmkey.bin" 

They are sent to the address:

So this program can connect itself to the SMTP server and to form email text it converts binary files into text format.

The file conatains the following strings:
