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.>
Bobin.A is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
