When executed, the trojan copies itself into the following location:

  • %appdata%\­nightupdate\­svchost.exe

In order to be executed on every system start, the trojan sets the following Registry entry:

  • [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\­Software\­Microsoft\­Windows\­CurrentVersion\­Run]
    • "UpdateSvchost" = "%appdata%\­nightupdate\­svchost.exe"
