Brief Description 

    

Bindo.A is a worm whose main objective is to spread and affect as many computers as possible by making copies of itself in the shared folders of the P2P programs.

Additionally, it creates an AUTORUN.INF file in all the system drives where it has been copied, in order to be run whenever any of them is accessed.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Bindo.A is easy to recognize, as it increases the number of shared files in the shared folders of P2P programs. It modifies some shortcuts of the desktop adding a new adress to it so it runs the malware when the user executes that shortcut.
