Brief Description 

    

HardFull.A is a Trojan that creates a file that fills itself with the text Win32.Delf.du_Ful, thus increasing its size until it uses up all the hard drive space available.

Additionally, HardFull.A disables the Windows Registry editing tools, and the Run and Find options in the Start menu.

HardFull.A does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an 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.

Visible Symptoms 

    

HardFull.A is easy to recognize, as it uses up all the hard drive space available. The computer would slow down or even block.
