    W32/Igloo-15 is a backdoor Trojan and internet worm which spreads via file sharing on KaZaA networks and via IRC channels.

    When first run W32/Igloo-15 copies itself to the Windows System folder as Explorer.exe and RealWayToHack.exe and creates the following registry entry so that Explorer.exe is run automatically each time Windows is started:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\EXPLORER
    = %System%\EXPLORER.EXE
