Brief Description 

    

Savno.A is a virus with worm characteristics that infects the PE files with a size greater than 102,400 bytes but smaller than 10,385,024 bytes that are in the shared directory of KaZaA.

Savno.A searches for files with an URL extension that fulfill a certain condition. If it finds any, it drops a Trojan, which tries to steal the passwords used to access certain services on the Internet. The Trojan will send the collected passwords to a website.

Savno.A is a direct action virus, which does not go memory resident.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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