Brief Description 

    

Constructor/SkypeWorm is a security risk for the computer in which it is present. This program, which allows new examples of malware to be created simply and easily from a series of options defined by the user, can be used maliciously with the consequent risk of infection.

 

Constructor/SkypeWorm uses the following propagation or distribution methods:

  • Exploiting vulnerabilities with the intervention of the user: exploiting vulnerabilities in file formats or applications. To exploit them successfully it needs the intervention of the user: opening files, viewing malicious web pages, reading emails, etc.
  • It is dropped or downloaded to the computer by other malware specimens, for example: SKWG.A.worm.
