Summary:

Worm. A program that is primarily replicating on networks or removable drives.

Payload

Behaviour Description
WormAutorun A worm can spread via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Worm's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.
IRCBot A bot can communicate with command and control servers via IRC channel.
MSNWorm A worm can spread its copies through the MSN Messanger.
DNSBlocker A program can block designated DNS servers for making it difficult for users to locate specific domains or web sites on the Internet.
UDPFlooder This program can make a UDP flood. A UDP flood attack is a denial-of-service attack using the User Datagram Protocol (UDP). It can be initiated by sending a large number of UDP packets to random ports on a remote host.
SYNFlooder This program can make a SYN flood. It is a form of denial-of-service attack in which an attacker sends a succession of SYN requests to a target's system in an attempt to consume enough server resources to make the system unresponsive to legitimate traffic.
Trojan-Proxy This program can launch a proxy server (SOCKS4) on a designated TCP port.
USBInfector A program can register a device notification with the help of RegisterDeviceNotification. So it is notified when a USB device is plugged and then the worm copies itself to the USB device plugged into the affected computer.

Propagation

A worm can spread via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Worm's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.
A program can register a device notification with the help of RegisterDeviceNotification. So it is notified when a USB device is plugged and then the worm copies itself to the USB device plugged into the affected computer.
A worm can spread its copies through the MSN Messanger.
