Threat: Trojan.Win32.Autoit.fhj
Vulnerability: Insecure Permissions
Description: The malware writes two hidden DLL files "vp8decoder.dll" and "vp8encoder.dll" to its installation directory granting full (F) permissions to the Everyone user group.

Then wait for a privileged user to logon to the infected machine to potentially escalate privileges.
