Propagation through the exploits of remote vulnerabilities:
Autorun.JND carries out the following process:
Propagation via mapped drives:
Autorun.JND checks if the infected computer is connected to a network.
If so, it makes an inventory of all mapped drives and creates a copy of itself in each of them.
Propagation through shared network resources:
Autorun.JND checks if the infected computer is connected to a network. If so, it tries to spread to the shared network drives.
To do this, it tries to gain access to these shared drives, using typical or easily guessed passwords.
Distribution of infected files:
