Technical Description:

This is a mixed thread combining two malicious behaviors:
            It tries to spread by copying itself to every disk and creating an "autorun.inf" file pointing to the copy on the disk. This is especially effective in the case of removable USB drives ("thumb drives")
            It downloads a second malware from a preset URL (which is inactive currently) and executes. It also tries to "prepare" the environment by terminating security / monitoring programs and processes and deleting the registry keys associated with them.Programs which are terminated by the malware:

        It sets itself up as a debugger by writing to the following registry key:

Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\

        It tries to delete the following registry keys to prevent components of security programs and the Windows Update from starting up:

SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv
SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RSPPSYS
SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\wscsvc
SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\wuauserv

        It modifies the settings related to hidden files and autorun so that hidden files are not shown in the Windows Explorer (even if the user modified the setting) and AutoRun is enabled (even if the user disabled it).
