Virus Characteristics

This trojan is designed to generate "clicks", and likely revenue, for the author. It does this by connecting to a porn website and two additional IP addresses. At the time of writing, one of these is no longer available.
Upon being run, the trojan very briefly creates a batch file in the Windows Temp directory, to delete itself. There is indication that the file also tries to create a registry key to run itself again on startup, but this did not function in testing.
