Inor.gen is not a worm, but a generic detection for future variants of the Inor family. This group of worms have the following common characteristics:
- It consists of a file with an HTML extension that contains an script.
- The aim of this file is to create and run an executable file (usually a file with an EXE extension).
- This executable file is usually a Trojan, that carries out several actions, such as dropping other Trojans.
- In addition, the HTML file could contain some HTML code that displayed an apparently normal web page, in order to hide the creation and running of the executable file.
Inor.gen is difficult to recognize, as it does not show any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
