Brief Description 

    

Exploit is a Trojan that exploits a vulnerability in the software for controlling network services. By doing this, it blocks the computer.

It is very easy to become infected by Exploit, as it uses many means to spread: e-mail messages with infected attachments, computer networks, CD-ROMs, downloads from the Internet, file transfer via FTP, floppy disks, etc.

Visible Symptoms 

    

The main indication that Exploit has reached a computer is that it blocks for no apparent reason.
