Tuareg is a polymorphic virus that infects files with EXE, SCR and CPL extensions.
In addition, Tuareg modifies the home page of the Internet Explorer browser when it is Friday on the system calendar.
It is easy to become infected by Tuareg, as it can reach computers through any of the means normally used by viruses: CD-ROMs, e-mail messages with infected attachments, Internet downloads, FTP, etc.
It is very easy to recognise Tuareg, as it changes the home page of Internet Explorer to www.thehungersite.com.
