Brief Description 

    

Netspree is a worm that discloses information from affected computers. By doing this, it leaves the computer vulnerable, as any user could access affected computers.

Netspree can also use the affected computer to carry out denial of service attacks (DoS).

This worm can affect computers running any Windows operating system. However, it can only spread through computers with Windows XP/2000/NT installed.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Netspree is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any warnings or messages that indicate it has reached the computer.
