Haptime.B is a worm that spreads through the Outlook Express e-mail program and computer networks.

- Automatically upon viewing the e-mail through Outlook’s Preview pane or when the message is opened.
- On sharing infected files in local hard disks or those shared in a network.
Haptime.B is not a highly dangerous virus, but it has destructive effects: it modifies and eliminates certain files.
The only indication that Haptime.B has reached your computer is the fact that some files are missing of have been modified for no apparent reason.
