Brief Description 

    

Gop is a worm, whose main objective is to spread via e-mail and obtain ICQ passwords.

The attachment has a random name and a double extension (eg. JPG and EXE). In this way, it tries to pass itself off as a text file or an image, when it is actually an executable file.

Visible Symptoms 

    

A clear indication that you have received Gop is a message whose attachment has a double extension.

These are the possible combinations: TXT.EXE, DOC.EXE, JPG.EXE, BPM.EXE, GIF.EXE, JPEG.EXE and RTF.EXE.
