FolderToEXE.A is a worm that replaces the folders that users open with a copy of itself. This way, if users run any of these subfolders again, FolderToEXE.A will be run.
Additionally, it hides the extensions of the copies of itself in order to go unnoticed and so that users do not realize that what they are really running is FolderToEXE.A.
By using this technique, FolderToEXE.A spreads through the affected computer.
FolderToEXE.A is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
