Trojan:Win32/Alureon.GC checks which Windows version a computer user is running and installs a specific version of itself. Trojan:Win32/Alureon.GC creates the registry entry to make sure that it starts whenever the computer user boots up the corrupted PC. Trojan:Win32/Alureon.GC aims to embed its payload into the files such as Explorer.exe, Firefox.exe, Iexplore.exe and Mozilla.exe. Trojan:Win32/Alureon.GC contacts a remote server indicated in its configuration file.
