Worm.AutoRun.eav

Posted: June 24, 2011

Worm.AutoRun.eav Description

Worm.AutoRun.eav is a worm that can duplicate itself and compromise your security to download and install other malicious programs without your consent. Worm.AutoRun.eav will create a backdoor in your security by opening ports and may also hide Worm.AutoRun.eav's activities with spoofs of native memory processes. Some versions of Worm.AutoRun.eav can also change your system settings to disable a variety of programs that could assist you in detecting or removing Worm.AutoRun.eav. Like all backdoor Trojans, Worm.AutoRun.eav is a high-priority security threat, and you should remove Worm.AutoRun.eav with appropriate anti-virus software the moment you catch Worm.AutoRun.eav on your PC.

Worm.AutoRun.eav - A Worm That's Adept at Hiding

The majority of Worm.AutoRun.eav infections have been reported to take place in 2008 and 2009, although a Worm.AutoRun.eav infection is still a threat to even the most modern Windows computers. Networked computers and computers that share removable devices are particularly vulnerable to being infected by Worm.AutoRun.eav, since standard worm functions let Worm.AutoRun.eav copy itself to network-shared locations and removable drives for automatic installation later.

Worm.AutoRun.eav infections can also be detected with the following names: Trojan.Sockrypt.Gen, BackDoor-DOQ, Worm:Win32/SillyShareCopy.gen and Virus.Win32.Lineage.351. As some of these names indicate, in addition to being a worm, Worm.AutoRun.eav can also display properties of a backdoor Trojan.

Worm.AutoRun.eav creates files like ctfmon.exe and spools.exe that imitate the baseline Windows processes that you would expect to see on any PC. Check memory usage and file locations to see if a suspicious file or memory process is really part of Windows or instead a component of Worm.AutoRun.eav.

The Worm.AutoRun.eav Trojan That Shows Your Registry No Mercy

Worm.AutoRun.eav's Trojan attributes will attack your security by way of the Windows Registry, making additions and deletions that leave your PC ripe for attack by remote criminals.

  • Worm.AutoRun.eav will open a TCP port on your computer to allow an unfettered flow of information both from and to your computer. This can allow criminals to attack and control the computer's every action from remote locations, or merely let the criminal install other malicious software such as keyloggers or rogue security programs.
  • Other system settings will also be modified, partially to perfect Worm.AutoRun.eav's disguise and partially to disable certain programs, such as VMWare. Worm.AutoRun.eav does this by changing the Windows Registry; although these changes don't harm the programs themselves, you may be unable to use the attacked programs until the Registry has been restored.

Besides disabled programs, Worm.AutoRun.eav may not give obvious indicators that Worm.AutoRun.eav is active, but you should assume that any Worm.AutoRun.eav infection is working in the background until you've taken measures to stop Worm.AutoRun.eav from starting.
