W32/Spybot-MH

Type Spyware Worm

W32/Spybot-MH is a worm and IRC backdoor for the Windows platform.

W32/Spybot-MH runs continuously in the background, providing a backdoor server
which allows a remote intruder to gain access and control over the computer via
IRC channels.

W32/Spybot-MH spreads using a variety of techniques including exploiting weak
passwords on computers and using backdoors opened by other worms or Trojans.

W32/Spybot-MH also attempts to copy itself to the startup folder of attached
network drives and can be used to record the keystrokes on the compromised
computer, effectively acting as a keylogger. This worm can also be used to
initiate SYNFlood attacks.
