Short description

The trojan serves as a backdoor. It can be controlled remotely. The file is run-time compressed using Allatori Java Obfuscator .


When executed, the trojan copies itself in some of the the following locations:

  • %appdata%\­%variable1%\­%variable2%.%variable3% (Microsoft Windows)
  • %userhome%/%variable1%/%variable2%.%variable3% (Linux)
  • %userhome%/%variable1%/%variable2%.%variable3% (Mac OS)

The trojan may set the following Registry entries:

  • [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\­Software\­Microsoft\­Windows\­CurrentVersion\­Run]
    • "%variable4" = "%jrepath% -jar %malwarepath%"
  • [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\­Software\­Microsoft\­Windows\­CurrentVersion\­Run]
    • "%variable4" = "%jrepath% -jar %malwarepath%"

A string with variable content is used instead of %variable1-4% .

The trojan may create the following files:

  • %userhome%/.config/autostart/%variable4%.desktop (Linux)
  • %userhome%/Library/LaunchAgents/com.%variable4%.plist (Mac OS)

This causes the trojan to be executed on every system start.
