Brief Description 

    

Naked is a dangerous worm, as it deletes files that are essential for the correct functioning of the Windows operating system, among others.

Naked reaches computers in an e-mail message with the subject  FW: Naked Wife and an attached file called NAKEDWIFE.EXE.

When the attached file is run, Naked carries out its infection. When it does this, it simulates a Flash presentation being loaded and run. It does this to distract the user’s attention while it deletes all the files it finds with an EXE, COMLOGBMPDLL  or INI extension in the Windows and Windows/System directories.

Then, it sends itself out to all the contacts in Outlook’s Address Book.
