How reliable is the msdc.exe file?

Typically, hackers bundle Msdc.exe with popular, frequently downloaded applications, such as PDF converters, media editors, etc., to ensure that the Trojan reaches as many potential victims as possible. Once it is downloaded on the computer, it usually settles on the C:\Windows\System32 folder and from there starts launching parasites, loading main components of malicious programs and running destructive payloads.
