Mal/EncPk-AFN is a backdoor Trojan that circulates via a fake flight confirmation email supposedly coming from Lufthansa. The spam Lufthansa email message affects computer users in Germany. However, the deceptive Lufthansa flight confirmation email may also attack PC users in any other country. The subject of the fraudulent email is 'Flugdetails & Reiseinformationen'. The bogus Lufthansa email includes a malevolent file called 'Flugscheindetails.zip' attached. Mal/EncPk-AFN fools victims into clicking on the malevolent file attachment, even if they were not planning to visit any country. The attached ZIP file carries a file called 'Flugsheindetails.PDF.exe', obviously called in an effort to trick the unsuspecting PC users into thinking it is a .pdf file. If the recipient launches the application, he/she installs a harmful code onto the PC, concealing itself as 'svchost.exe' to reduce the suspicions of any computer user, who checks the list of running processes. A registry key of 'SunJavaUpdateSched' is also created. The code opens a backdoor on the victimized PC, which enables remote cybercriminals to transmit commands, and possibly steal information or install more malware infections on the corrupted PC. The .exe file is found as Mal/EncPk-AFN.
