Re: New PowerPoint Trojan installs itself as LSP

Is this 'mechanism' very common and is it difficult to detect by AV? 

No, but you have to be damned careful removing something installed as an
LSP. I've seen literally hundreds of PCs with their network stack
buggered because the owner tried to remove NewDotNet. NewDotNet inserts
itself as an LSP.

This new Trojan entitled as Riler.F opens a back door and tries to
connect to 8800.org,
earlier Bifrose Trojan uses (or used) this domain too.

There is a new C variant of Trojan.PPDropper as well, but no information
about the file name of PowerPoint attachment etc.
Symantec reports Infection Length as 220,160 bytes, same as used by
This size information is from Trojan description of another vendor,

This summary has been updated to related PowerPoint 0-day FAQ document.
