Girlfriend currently affects Windows 95/98 PC's.

The "server" portion is named "windll.exe" and would be found in the WINDOWS directory.

Port 21554 (by default) is used to establish the connection between the "client" and "server".

Once installed, it is rerun every time the computer is started by means of an entry under the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" branch in the Registry.

Who is Responsible?

Girlfriend was written by an individual calling himself General Failure for the sole purpose of stealing passwords.

Provided below, is a picture of what the "client" portion of the software looks like. It's what the remote user would use to control your system. What could be easier than "pointing and clicking" your way through another users PC?
