Brief Description 

    

Maldal.I is a worm that reaches systems in a file attached to an e-mail message with variable subjects and characteristics, but always with a PIF extension.

Maldal.I does not have a destructive payload, as its main aim is to spread and infect other systems. Once it is activated, it displays three images on the screen.

  • Subject:

    It varies on every infection. For further information, please consult  the Means of transmission section.
  • Message: it does not contain any text inside the e-mail message.
  • Attached file:

    It varies on every infection, but always has PIF extension.

Once activated, Maldal.I displays an image which includes a message related to the worm.

If the user clicks Exit, the worm carries out its infection process. After some time, it displays another message indicating that the process is over.
