Brief Description 

    

Lunchload.A is a Trojan that connects to a certain server in order to receive instructions, such as dowloading and running files, which can be of any nature, including malware. Additionally, it updates the files downloaded from that server daily.

On the other hand, it obtains the MAC address from the computer, in order to keep a record of the computers it has affected.

Lunchload.A reaches the computer in a file named BACKUP2_36.EXE. However, it does not spread automatically using its own means.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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