Worm.Emudbot.A is a computer infection that spreads other the network. Different producers of antivirus applications detected this worm not at the same time and named it differently. For example, the worm is also known as Worm:Win32/Emudbot.A and W32/Autorun.worm.gen. It is known that Worm.Emudbot.A duplicates itself and uses removable drives to infect computers. Detect and remove the worm if you have a suspicion that your computer’s system is infected.
Once this worm steals onto the computer, it makes certain changes in the system. For example, it copies itself and create random files such as %Temp%\[RANDOM CHARACTERS].exe which hide the worm and do not allow users to find and remove it. The worm may also install autorun.inf, which can be used variously. In the case of this infection, the file might be used to spread the infection to any removable memory device. Therefore, be wary of suspicious applications that you intend to install from a non-scanned removable disk. Moreover, Worm.Emudbot.A connects to the Internet, modifies Internet Explorer, and tries to download other malicious files to the computer. It is also alleged to use Windows Live Messenger to send messages to the contacts of a user to infect other computers.
Worm.Emudbot.A has two executable files attributed to it. These files are sik.exe and wui.exe which are known as malicious files. For example, when the system is infected with it, you may check your Task Manager and find that wui.exe is running in your system. The file sik.exe, which is another malicious file, is known as a file which might be attached to an installation package, and this is how the worm might get into the system.
You should detect all the malicious components of Worm.Emudbot.A and remove them. As to remove the worm manually might be a hard task for inexperienced Windows users, there is a way to fix everything easily. You should use a legitimate security application which will detect and delete Worm.Emudbot.A from the system. A reliable security tool will not leave any components of the infection, and there will be no need to worry about further infections.
