Executes %System%\Szchostc.exe, which runs a proxy on a port number calculated from the current system time.
Connects to the IP address 126.96.36.199 on TCP port 25 to receive instructions from the attacker.
Attempts to download the file, %System%\system.ing, from a remote host that is hard-coded in the Trojan.
Gathers various pieces of system information based on the content of %System%system.ing.
This may include IP address, Computer Name, folder listings, and so on.
Submits information gathered to a PHP page at www.mercuryloungecasino.com, along with the port number on which the proxy runs.
