Hybris.C is a virus with worm characteristics that infects files with an EXE extension. Every November 24, it also displays an animation of a spiral on the Windows Desktop.
Hybris.C reaches computers in a file attached to an email message. The sender of this message is Hahaha < email@example.com > and the subject of the message in English is Snowwhite and the seven dwarfs-The REAL story!, but there are also versions in Spanish, Portuguese and French.
The danger of Hybris.C lies in its capacity to spread. It does this by controlling the email message sent from infected computers. When the user sends an email message, the worm waits a while and then sends another message.
The message carrying Hybris.C is easy to recognize because it always has the subject Snowwhite and the seven dwarfs-The REAL story! and the sender is always Hahaha < firstname.lastname@example.org >. This message is also sent in Spanish, Portuguese and French. For information on the versions in these languages, click here.
When it activates, Hybris.C displays an animated spiral on the Windows Desktop every November 24.
