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

A malicious program designed to electronically spy on the user’s activities (intercept keyboard input, take screenshots, capture a list of active applications, etc.). The collected information is sent to the cybercriminal by various means, including email, FTP, and HTTP (by sending data in a request).

Technical Details

This primitive Trojan is written in BAT and is 1471 bytes in size.

It creates a directory named VSXInfected in the C: root directory. It then moves files with the extensions .BAT, .VBS, .DLL, .SYS, .OCX, and .MOD from the C: root directory to this directory.

After moving the files, the virus displays the following message:

    This version of Virii Scan� X has detected that you have infected files in 'C:' drive(s).
    All infected file have been placed in C:VSXInfected.

    N) No

If the user presses N, the following message will be displayed

'Thank You for using Virii Scano X for your computer protection.'.
and exists to the system.

If the user presses Y, the Trojan will cause the message below to be displayed:

    You have chosen to have Virii Scan� X to delete your infected file(s).
    Are you sure you wish to continue?
    Y) Yes
    N) No

If the user chooses N, the program exits. If the user presses Y, then the directory VSXInfected will be deleted.

The Trojan then displays the following message:

All infected files have been deleted.
Thank you for using Virii Scano X for your computer protection.

Would you like to view the ReadMe file?

Y) Yes
