Worm.Donab.A

Developers of worms and viruses continually develop new ways to spread their infections as security measures catch up with their seditious natures. It would seem as though the aggressive nature of Worm.Donab.A has even surprised online security experts with its dogged determination.

This worm has the ability to multiply and reproduce itself on a system in order to infect many areas of the PC. Security websites lists Worm.Donab.A’s threat level as severe, and with good reason. Not only does Worm.Donab.A replicate itself on an infected PC, but its very nature dictates that it infects as many systems as possible.

The developers behind Worm.Donab.A gave it the ability to spread to different PCs in a variety of ways. This worm in particular has been known to copy itself to removable media such as USB devices or network drives, and by then exploiting particular susceptibilities of the targeted PCs. What makes Worm.Donab.A even more sinister is its ability to spread from one PC to another without user interaction from the host PC, as it can attach itself to emails or instant messages with an alluring message in the body which prompts the victim to open the executable which will in turn download a copy of the worm to the new system.

If you are unsure whether your PC has been compromised by Worm.Donab.A, look for the following files in these locations:

c:/bootfont.sys
c:/recycled/bootfont.sys
c:/seguridad/@b@ddon.exe
c:/seguridad/ctfmon.exe

Finding these files on the system will be a clear indication of Worm.Donab.A’s presence on your system. Other security applications have identified Worm.Donab.A’s aliases as the following:

W32/Autorun.worm.c
WORM_OTORUN.UVA
Trojan.Win32.Cosmu.xlw &
W32.SillyDC

It is always nice to think that our systems are protected against such threats, but unless you take a proactive stance regarding your PC security and permanently destroy Worm.Donab.A from the entire system, you will have many persistent problems. Make use of a genuine security tool which will not only obliterate Worm.Donab.A from the system but also offer continued protection against future threats and attacks.
