Technical Description:

Variants of this trojan are written in VBscript or Javascript. It attempts to download from internet an executable, save it locally to hardisk (usually replacing a valid executable) and execute it.
It does this by exploiting a vulnerability in Internet Explorer (the ADODB.Stream object)
