Brief Description 

    

Combra.S is a worm that spreads by copying itself, without infecting other files.

 

It affects productivity, preventing tasks from being carried out:

  • In the affected computer: causes system slowdowns.

 

It reduces the security level of the computer: it opens one or more ports to allow remote access to the computer and takes action that compromises user confidentiality.

 

Combra.S does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. 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.
