Payload

After launching, the trojan changes the value of the system registry key as follows:

[HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Start Page" = "www.5***iling.com"
"Search Page" = "www.5***ling.com"
"default_page_url" = "www.5***ling.com"
[HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "safe360" = "%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\sebsbvx\coiome.exe

This changes the default home page and search page on the Internet Explorer browser. It also automatically launches a file named "coiome.exe" every time the system is started up.
