Brief Description 

    

Auric.E is a worm that does not have any destructive effects on the computers it infects, which spreads via e-mail, the IRC channels and P2P (peer to peer) file sharing programs.

When it spreads via e-mail, Auric.E reaches computers in an e-mail message that always contains an attached file called SZISZI_VIDEO.EXE. When it has infected a computer, this worm sends itself out to all the addresses in the Windows Address Book and in all the files with an HT* extension.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Auric.E is easy to recognize when it spreads via e-mail, as it reaches computers in a message with the following characteristics:

  • From:
    "VALO VILAG" <valovilag@rtlklub.hu>
  • Subject: one of the following:
    Sziszi, a voros demon!
    Sziszi a zuhanyzoban
