Zerolin.A reaches the computer when the user accesses a certain web page. Then Zerolin.A uses a Windows DLL (Dynamic-Link Library) in order to download a Trojan from another web page.
However, this latter Trojan is not available, and therefore it is not properly created on the affected computer. Instead, the created file displays a 404 error, Page not found.
Zerolin.A is difficult to recognize, as it does not show any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
