Threat Detail

  • Malware Type: Virus
  • Malware Sub-type: Win32
  • Protection Added: 2004-07-14

This is a virus detection. Viruses are programs that self-replicate recursively, meaning that infected systems spread the virus to other systems, which then propagate the virus further. While many viruses contain a destructive payload, it's quite common for viruses to do nothing more than spread from one system to another.
