W32/Sdbot-VC

Aliases WORM_SDBOT.AOW

Type Worm

W32/Sdbot-VC is a worm which attempts to spread to remote network shares. It also contains backdoor Trojan functionality, allowing unauthorised remote access to the infected computer via IRC channels while running in the background as a service process.
W32/Sdbot-VC spreads to network shares with weak passwords and via network security exploits as a result of the backdoor Trojan element receiving the appropriate command from a remote user (it copies itself to MSYGSY.DAT on the local machine at the same time).
