This Trojan uses high CPU usage, disk activity or memory usage as a method to hide itself when it starts running. When it does start up, it displays fake error messages such as “Error: Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file.” These errors are used to trick the victim into thinking there is something wrong with his/her system. Once the victim believes he/she needs to call tech support, the malware sends the stolen information to its creator(s).
The malware also generates random text files containing a list of IP addresses associated with the victim’s network card. These files are sent to the attacker via email every few minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the use of CPU and memory so high?
All of your computer’s memory consists of random access memory (RAM). This is because RAM is used to store data temporarily. For example, when you open a file in Microsoft Word, it stores the information about the document in RAM. When you close the program, the information is deleted from RAM.
However, the problem of high RAM consumption is mainly due to overload of many internal processes. If there are too many files opened in the system, Windows will allocate more RAM to each process. As a result, the system becomes slower and less responsive. You can solve this problem by stopping unnecessary programs and running applications, such as browsers, instant messengers, etc., and cleaning up temporary files.
Open the Task Manager and check whether there are any additional programs that you are no longer using at the moment. If you find out that some unwanted programs occupy much space, disable them.
How to fix high CPU and RAM load?
CPU and RAM are important parts of your computer, and it’s good to know how to keep them running smoothly. Here are some tips to help you out.
Reboot Your Computer
To reboot your computer, press the power button once, and hold it down for 10 seconds. You’ll see the Windows logo pop up briefly, and then the screen will turn off. When you start again, you’ll boot into normal mode.
Stop Or Restart Processes
If something isn’t working properly, try stopping or restarting the process that’s causing problems. After the process ends, close Task Manager. To restart a process, open Task Manager, find the process you want to run again, right-click it and choose Start.
You might notice that certain programs don’t work because there aren’t enough drivers installed. Drivers allow software to communicate with hardware components like printers, scanners, and cameras. If you haven’t updated drivers recently, do that now. Locate the device you want to update, right-click it to view information about it, and then follow the prompts to install the latest driver version.
