What does Svrwsc.exe do to my system?

When first executed, the Svrwsc.exe virus drops a few copies of itself into the System or the System32 folder and the drives of the computer. These copies in the drives are accompanied by an autorun.inf file that launches the Svrwsc whenever you try to open the drive. Apart from that, the Svrwsc.exe was also seen connecting to the Internet and downloading several malicious files to the %temp% i.e the temporary folder. Something new about this virus is that it creates a batch file in the temporary folder that is made to run using the Command Prompt at every startup. For this, the Svrwsc Trojan makes use of the Registry. Another way it hides itself is by staying among the Microsoft Services so even if you took care of the process, the virus would still be running in the background.
