Once the virus is run, it does the following:

1. Creates mutex "EnD-Of-SkyNet" in order to have only one presence in memory.
2. Creates a new thread that creates in TEMP folder a file named Message (approx 4 KBytes) containing binary junk, and opens it in Notepad. When Notepad is closed, the thread is closed and the file Message is deleted
3. Creates in %SYSTEM% the file Nemog.dll and registers it to [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{E6FB5E20-DE35-11CF-9C87-00AA005127ED}]
4. Creates a copy of the virus in %SYSTEM% folder as tasker.exe
