    What is W32.Beagle.J@mm and how does it affect me?

    W32.Beagle.J@mm is a mass-mailing worm that opens a backdoor on TCP port 2745 and uses its own SMTP engine to spread through email. In doing so, it sends the attacker the port on which the backdoor listens, as well as the IP address. It also attempts to spread through file-sharing networks, such as Kazaa and iMesh, by dropping itself into the folders that contain "shar" in their names.

    An email potentially containing the worm has the following characteristics:
    From: Spoofed to appear as though it is coming from the one of the following addresses at the recipient's domain:

    management
    administration
    staff
    noreply
    support

    Attachment: A randomly named .exe file, inside a .zip file, or an .pif file.
    The zip file will be password-protected.

    Hello Cyrafter

    Programs like Spybot S&D are not specific for viruses and worms,
    so try with an updated virusscanner.
