Brief Description 

    
MyBaby.A is a worm with the characteristics of a Trojan.
MyBaby.A spreads by copying itself, without infecting other files. Its main objective is to collapse computers and networks, preventing users from working with their computers.
Furthermore, due to its Trojan characteristics, MyBaby.A allows hackers to get into and carry out dangerous actions in affected computers, such as capturing screenshots, stealing personal data, etc.

 

MyBaby.A does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.

 

Visible Symptoms 

    

The first symptom of the presence of this worm on the computer -please note that this does not necessarily mean infection has occurred- is an e-mail message with the following characteristics:

 

Subject: My baby pic !!!
Message Body: Its my animated baby picture !!
Attachment: MYBABYPIC.EXE.

When the attachment is run, two images will be displayed on the screen.
