Troj/Mastseq-H is a backdoor Trojan that runs continuously in the background providing various services to a remote intruder. Troj/Mastseq-H injects its code into a new instance of Microsoft Internet Explorer, in order to be less obvious in the process list and to possibly gain trusted application status.
