Brief Description 

    

Warpi is a worm with backdoor characteristics that spreads across computer networks. Warpi attempts to connect to the network shared resources by using passwords that are typical or easy to guess. Once it is connected, Warpi remotely copies and runs itself in other computers.

Warpi connects to a specific IRC server, joins a certain channel and waits for instructions. The attacking user can perform the following actions, among others: obtain information on the system, obtain the passwords stored in the cache memory, end active processes, delete files and directories, carry out denial of service (DoS) attacks, etc.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Warpi is not easy to recognize, as it does not show any messages or warnings that may indicate that it has reached the computer.
