Brief Description 

    

Korgo.BF is a worm that spreads by copying itself, without infecting other files. Its main objective is to collapse computers and networks, preventing users from working with the affected computer.

 

Note: in September, 2005 PandaLabs detected a Trojan called SymbOS/Multidropper.A, which affected cellular phones running the operating system Symbian. This Trojan copied the files belonging to the worms Wukill.A and Korgo.BF to the SD memory of the cellphone. Therefore, though these worms are specifically aimed at affecting Windows computers and cannot be executed in Symbian, still their files could be detected in those devices. For further information, please refer to the information about Multidropper.A.
