Sluter is a worm that does not have any destructive effects, which spreads across shared resources in networks based on the operating systems Windows XP, 2000 and NT.
Once Sluter has infected a computer, it checks if there other computers are connected to it in a network. If there are, it tries to access them in order to create a copy itself in them and run it.
Sluter is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any warnings or messages that indicate that it has infected a computer.
