Brief Description 

    

Incef.A is a worm that modifies several settings of the peer-to-peer (P2P) program KaZaA: it shares the root directory of the C: drive and a subfolder of the Windows directory, and it disables the firewall and the virus filtering included in it.

It carries out these actions in order to spread more easily through KaZaA, but it also spreads via IRC, using the program mIRC.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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