Brief Description 

    

Downloader.OG is a Trojan that periodically installs an adware type program in the affected computer, downloading it from several websites. This adware program is detected by Panda Security as Adware/Wupd.

Downloader.OG does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs the attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, e-mail messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.
