IntroductionNeurevt bot “Beta Bot” has a lot of functionalities along with an extendable and flexible infrastructure. Upon installation, the bot injects itself into almost all user processes to take over the whole system. Moreover, it utilizes a mechanism that makes use of Windows messages and the registry to coordinate those injected codes. The bot communicates with its C&C server through HTTP requests. Different parts of the communication data are encrypted (mostly with RC4). Many components cover a large number of the most popular malicious functionalities, including downloading malware, DDoS attacks, and credentials stealing.
