Operation POWERSHOWER

The campaign takes advantage of flaws in Microsoft Word in an attempt to drop a PowerShell backdoor labeled "POWERSHOWER" onto the infected system. The malware is capable of stealing sensitive information from the compromised machine and uploading to a command and control server under the attackers control. The operation also removes traces of itself including files and registry entries to make post infection analysis difficult.
