Short description

The trojan serves as a backdoor. It can be controlled remotely. It is written in Python .


The trojan may create copies of the following files (source, destination):

  • %malwarefilepath%, %windir%\­LogonUI.exe
  • %malwarefilepath%, %localappdata%\­LogonUI.exe\­LogonUI.exe

The trojan schedules a task that causes the following file to be executed on every system start:

  • %windir%\­LogonUI.exe

The trojan may set the following Registry entries:

  • [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\­SOFTWARE\­Microsoft\­Windows\­CurrentVersion\­Run]
    • "LogonUI.exe" = "%variable%"
  • [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\­SOFTWARE\­Microsoft\­Windows\­CurrentVersion\­Run]
    • "LogonUI.exe" = "%variable%"

The %variable% is one of the following strings:

  • %windir%\­LogonUI.exe
  • %localappdata%\­LogonUI.exe\­LogonUI.exe

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

The trojan may create the following files:

  • %startup%\­LogonUI.exe.lnk

The file is a shortcut to a malicious file.

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

  • external IP address of the network device

  • download files from a remote computer and/or the Internet
  • run executable files
  • send gathered information
  • execute shell commands
  • send requested files
  • stop itself for a certain time period
  • uninstall itself

The trojan keeps various information in the following files:

  • %localappdata%\­.%variable%
  • %temp%\­.%variable%.tmp

A string with variable content is used instead of %variable% .
