DOS/Rovnix.gen!A is categorized as Trojan horse. It possesses some basic features of a Trojan horse; but being a member of Rovnix family, the Trojan is capable of affecting volume boot record so as to load unsigned kernel-mode drivers on a target machine. Since boot record does not belong to any disk, DOS/Rovnix.gen!A manages to stay on a machine without being removed even when the victims try disk format.
When its settlement is fixed, the Trojan horse would then have a chance to write its own data to the end of a physical drive in an attempt to execute its copies in pivotal sections, such as startup and security service. With the modified driver, DOS/Rovnix.gen!A will be able to add self-made values and keys into Database. By doing so, the random modifications will not be rectified back easily and automatically by the system.
The last but not least, the files generated by DOS/Rovnix.gen!A have the System (S) and Hidden (H) attributes present in attempt to hide the file in Windows Explorer; as soon as the entire installation is finished, the DOS Trojan would delete its original executable file. With the two methods combined, DOS/Rovnix.gen!A manages to control the machine to the greatest extent without being caught and removed.
