Brief Description 

    

PayRob.A is a Trojan that steals the PayPal passwords of the affected user. PayPal is a service that lets users that have an email account send money or make payments through the Internet.

PayRob.A does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.

Visible Symptoms 

    

PayRob.A is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.

However, if the subfolder MSAPPS does not exist in the Windows directory of the affected system, the following message is displayed:

Message displayed
which says Cannot create file "C:\windows\msapps\modulo3.txt". The system cannot find the path specified
