Hiberium.C is a worm that spreads by copying itself, without infecting other files.
It reduces the security level of the computer:
it notifies the attacker that the computer has been compromised and is ready to be used maliciously.
Hiberium.C accesses several websites to download files, which it then runs. These can be any type of file, although they are normally malware.
Hiberium.C uses the following propagation or distribution methods:
- Exploiting vulnerabilities with the intervention of the user: exploiting vulnerabilities in file formats or applications. To exploit them successfully it needs the intervention of the user: opening files, viewing malicious web pages, reading emails, etc.
- Computer networks (mapped drives): it creates copies of itself in mapped drives.
- Computer networks (shared resources): it creates copies of itself in shared network resources to which it has access.
