Brief Description 

    

Heevahava is a virus that spreads to other computers by copying its code to other files or programs.

 

Heevahava 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, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.

 

Heevahava uses the following infection strategies:

  • Companion: it renames files on the infected computer. This virus also makes copies of itself, and assigns them the original names of the files it has renamed. When users try to open the original file, they will actually be running a copy of the virus.
