Summary:

Trojan. A program that appears to do one thing but actually does another (a.k.a. Trojan Horse).

Payload

Behaviour Description
WormAutorun A worm can spread via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Trojan's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.
IRCBot A bot can communicate with command and control servers via IRC channel.
MSNWorm A worm can spread its copies through the MSN Messanger.
Trojan-Proxy This program can launch a proxy server (SOCKS4) on a designated TCP port.

HOSTS file anomalies

No changes have been detected.

Rootkit activity

No anomalies have been detected.

Propagation

A worm can spread via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Trojan's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.

A worm can spread its copies through the MSN Messanger.
