Brief Description 

    

Hiloti is a Trojan which downloads to the affected computer the adware detected as Lop.

Additionally, when users access through the Firefox browser certain websites related to search engines, they are redirected to malicious websites from which more malware will be downloaded.

On Windows Server 2008/Vista computers, it reduces the protection level of the computer, as it modifies the level of the Mandatory Integrity Control (MIC), leaving it low.

Hiloti does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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