Bredolab is a trojan horse that downloads and executes files from the Internet, such as rogue anti-spyware. To bypass firewalls, it injects its own code into legitimate processes svchost.exe and explorer.exe. Bredolab contains anti-sandbox code (the trojan might quit itself when an external program investigates its actions).

This Bredolab variant will create the files:

%AppData%\wiaservg.log
%Windir%\temp\wpv861256600826.exe
%Programs%\Startup\isqsys32.exe

It will also create the process isqsys32.exe and svchost.exe. The dll %Windir%\dsqstm6.dll is being loaded into the address space of Internet Explorer combined with several Windows registry edits.

It will attempt to connect with the remote hosts on port 80: 202.39.17.53 0, 217.23.7.162 and 95.211.27.211.

The data identified by the following URL was then requested from the remote web server:
