Flingstone Bridge


vnmispoisn_downloader.exe is compressed with UPX and works as a downloader for Flingstone Bridge, named TROJ_SMALL.IQ by TrendMicro. The downloader can arrive at your computer if you have Shazaa.bh21 or Shazaa.b22 installed on your computer. It appears that the downloader leaves an empty 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run \ mswspl' value in the registry when it has finished its work. There are some indications [1] [2] [3] that the downloader in some cases may overwrite the legitimate Windows Media Player file wmplayer.exe.

Symantec and TrendMicro offers more information about Flingstone Bridge.
