Brief Description 

    

Bagle.R is a worm that opens TCP port 2556 and listens to it.

Bagle.R spreads via e-mail in a message with variable characteristics and through peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs.

Bagle.R attempts to connect to several IP addresses, in order to download and run a file on the affected computer.

In addition, Bagle.R ends processes belonging to several antivirus programs, firewalls and system monitoring tools. It also ends the processes belonging to previous variants of the worms Bagle and Netsky.
