-
This trojan targets a specific vulnerability in the Microsoft Internet Explorer as described in CVE-2010-3962.
This detection is sufficiently generic, such that it can cover a number of threats that contain the exploit code.  Therefore, it is not possible to describe specific symptoms or details about system changes that can occur from this threat.  However, simply seeing this detection does not mean that any exploit code was run at all as such exploit code could only run on a vulnerable system.
Additionally some exploits simply cause Internet Explorer to crash and nothing more.
