Date Discovered: 2/6/2004
Date Added: 2/27/2004
Origin: Unknown
Length: 40,960 Bytes
Type: Trojan
SubType: Remote Access

Virus Characteristics

This is a trojan that installs itself on the victim's system for the purpose of logging any keys pressed and sending this log to a remote computer. By doing this, it allow the attacker to grab sensitive information, including usernames and passwords.

Note: This was earlier detected as BackDoor-CCG, but has since been renamed to KeyLog-Briss.

Installation

Upon execution, the trojan modifies the registry to automatically load itself into memory at the next startup.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
"systray" = C:\test\A.EXE

Note: The keylogging behavior was not observed during testing.
