Name webcheck.exe


Troj/Soromo-A is a browser-hijacking Trojan.
In order to run automatically when Windows starts up the Trojan copies itself to one of the following filenames in the Windows system folder:
update.exe; explorer.exe; winlogon.exe; system.exe; taskman.exe; taskmon.exe; svchost.exe; services.exe; wupdmgr.exe; winspool.exe; webcheck.exe; wininet.exe

Troj/Soromo-A periodically starts up a browser and directs it to a URL chosen randomly from a list of websites configured by the author.

Manual removal:
Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE entries:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\System Update
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\System Update
and delete them if they exist.
