W32/Mytob-BY
Summary

Aliases Net-Worm.Win32.Mytob.bi
W32/Mytob.gen@MM
WORM_MYTOB.GN


Type Worm

W32/Mytob-BY is a mass-mailing worm and IRC backdoor Trojan.
W32/Mytob-BY can spread by sending itself as an email attachment to email addresses it harvests from the infected computer, either as an attachment with a double-extension or as a zip file containing a file with a double-extension. W32/Mytob-BY avoids sending emails to addresses containing certain strings in them.
W32/Mytob-BY processes the emails it has harvested by splitting them into name and domain. Once it has sent itself to the emails it has harvested, it uses a predefined list of names with the harvested domains. W32/Mytob-BY spoofs the sender, sending emails as if from one of the following at the same domain as the recipient:
support
administrator
mail
service
admin
info
register
webmaster
