Trojan.Encoder.12703 uses the same path for its operation. An analysis of the Dr.Web Anti-virus log obtained from one of our customer’s computers showed that Trojan.Encoder.12703 was launched on the infected machine by the application ProgramData\Medoc\Medoc\ezvit.exe, which is a component of M.E.Doc:

The file ZvitPublishedObjects.dll, which was requested from the infected machine, had the same hash as a sample examined in the Doctor Web virus laboratory (3567434e2e49358e8210674641a20b147e0bd23c). This backdoor can execute the following functions in the infected system:

  • Collect data for accessing mail servers;
  • Execute arbitrary commands in the infected system;
  • Load arbitrary files to the infected computer;
  • Load, save and start any executable files;
  • Upload arbitrary files to a remote server.

Below is the code fragment of the M.E.Doc update module—it allows the payload to be launched using the tool rundll32.exe with the parameter #1:

This is exactly how the encryption Trojan, known as NePetya, Petya.A, ExPetya and WannaCry-2 (Trojan.Encoder.12544), was launched on the computers of victims.

Curing recommendations

  1. If the operating system (OS) can be loaded (either normally or in safe mode), download Dr.Web Security Space and run a full scan of your computer and removable media you use. More about Dr.Web Security Space.
  2. If you cannot boot the OS, change the BIOS settings to boot your system from a CD or USB drive. Download the image of the emergency system repair disk Dr.Web® LiveDisk , mount it on a USB drive or burn it to a CD/DVD. After booting up with this media, run a full scan and cure all the detected threats.

Use Dr.Web Anti-virus for macOS to run a full scan of your Mac.

After booting up, run a full scan of all disk partitions with Dr.Web Anti-virus for Linux.

Download Dr.Web

Download by serial number

  1. If the mobile device is operating normally, download and install Dr.Web for Android. Run a full system scan and follow recommendations to neutralize the detected threats.
  2. If the mobile device has been locked by Android.Locker ransomware (the message on the screen tells you that you have broken some law or demands a set ransom amount; or you will see some other announcement that prevents you from using the handheld normally), do the following:
    • Load your smartphone or tablet in the safe mode (depending on the operating system version and specifications of the particular mobile device involved, this procedure can be performed in various ways; seek clarification from the user guide that was shipped with the device, or contact its manufacturer);
    • Once you have activated safe mode, install the Dr.Web for Android onto the infected handheld and run a full scan of the system; follow the steps recommended for neutralizing the threats that have been detected;
    • Switch off your device and turn it on as normal.
