With the extended Device Administrator Privileges, the Trojan can block the devices screen for up to 10 seconds.

Obtaining root privileges can put cybercriminals in an advantageous position when executing commands on the console remotely. In addition the malicious program reports its current status to its owner: Cybercriminals can also use text messages to control the Trojan.
Each incoming text message is analyzed for the presence of any of these keys. If a key is found, the appropriate action is performed:. This will make all infected devices reconnect to the new server.

The journey had been mostly straight down, over impossibly sharp icy rocks and slippery narrow ledges.
A thin film of greasy frost covered everything he touched. His five ten stature meant a lot of dangerous overreaching. Delaney had always shrugged it off with a wry smile whenever someone mentioned it.
Only a privileged few knew the real reason he was called Devil. It was because whatever situation Jake Delaney got himself into, it always turned to hell. The Martian soil this far down was mostly glacial. Fissures such as this one honeycombed the planet. It was barely visible now, hundreds of feet up. Only his standard issue Oxytherm suit protected him from the elements and allowed him to breathe in the harsh environment of Mars. Special Operations Command had made the use of the Oxytherms in such extreme environments compulsory for one reason only—combat ability.
Another precarious stretch downward and Delaney grabbed hold of a chunk of rock jutting out above a wider ledge. Shimmers of vivid ultramarine light bounced off the crystal walls. It was the first splash of color he had seen in two hours. The floor of the cave lay thirty feet below him. It looked soft like snow, yielding and inviting.
He considered jumping to save time. He pushed a small green button on his arm-mounted communications panel. Inside his helmet, a headset mike swung smoothly into position near his chin. There was a soft crackle. Did you work out what caused it? Lena sat in the warm comfort of an all terrain vehicle parked in a natural bay of large rocks near the cave entrance. Inside the vehicle with her were two marines. I figure I can make a jump for it. Save fifteen minutes or so. I suggest you continue your controlled descent. He just wanted to see how Lena would react. See if she cared enough to stop him.
It appeared she did. Delaney had been mesmerized by Lena from the moment she arrived at Lincoln Base. Ten years of his life had been ripped apart in an instant. In fact, the whole cave began to vibrate with a loud hum that shook through the icy rocks and right into his bones. Delaney gripped the wall tighter. He pushed himself flat up against it, trying to steady himself.
Small slithers of ice began to drop all around him. Then the pieces became larger and more frequent. It was as though someone was pouring a giant slushy over him. He crouched down, then got into a position laying on his stomach with his feet dangling over the edge of the little outcrop. He was going to attempt to lower himself over the ledge. Slowly, Delaney began to lose control, sliding towards the edge as his body gave way to gravity.
First his legs, then his waist were pulled over the greasy ledge. But his arms were still slipping. He felt his elbows rubbing against the sharp points of tiny icy rocks. The weight of his entire body and backpack was slowly pulling him downward, and there was nothing to grab on to. The ground was shaking violently, rocking the two vehicles like toy trucks at the hands of some insane child. Even strapped in to her seat, Lena found it difficult to stop her body being jarred about like a puppet.
She gripped onto the flexible steel microphone which extended from the dashboard. Some rocks had started falling from the cliffs surrounding the ATVs. There was a sudden, deafening crash on the roof of Vehicle One. Then he looked apologetically at Lena for cursing.
