Troj/Loony-M is a backdoor Trojan which allows unauthorised remote access to the infected computer via IRC channels.

Troj/Loony-M copies itself to the Windows system folder as MPL32.EXE and creates the following registry entry so as to run itself on system startup:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\MPL32 Driver = "MPL32.exe"

Troj/Loony-M may display a fake error message with the title "Error-388" and the text "A valid driver.dll file was not found".
