It's a worm[edit]

It spreads using vulnerabilities and without end-user interaction; it is a worm. --John Moser (talk) 01:40, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Changed the category from Trojan to Botnet as it does "spread without end-user interaction" but is also organized based on the bot herder needs Utopiah (talk) 12:03, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Technical info[edit]

Media reporting on the capabilities of trojans and viruses is notoriously inaccurate. Can we get some real technical information on how this spreads and how it steals data? Rhobite (talk) 22:31, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
