Threat: Trojan.Win32.Pluder.o
Vulnerability: Insecure Permissions
Description: Creates an insecure dir named "z_Drivers" under c:\ drive, granting change (C) permissions to authenticated user group. Pluder.o also creates several registry key entries under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run for persistence. Standard users can rename the malware and reboot to disable it or replace it with their own executable to escalate privileges when a privileged user logs on. When renaming the malware it checks the dir and creates a new "svchost.exe" each time so we need to take additional step to create our own fake one in order to disable it. To successfully rename the malware we have to call Windows "attrib -h" command to unhide the executable or the rename will fail.
Type: PE32
