Brief Description 

    

W32/Shoho is a worm that spreads via e-mail byexploiting the IFRAME vulnerability that allows running attached files automatically.

Visible Symptoms 

    

The worm copies itself to the Windows and Windows\Systemdirectories under the name WINL0G0N.EXE. Note that the 0 character corresponds to number 0 and not the letter O, as it might look at first sight.

In addition, the worm creates another file called EMAIL.TXT. This is aMIME file that takes advantage of the IFRAMEvulnerability.
