Msnsoug.A is a Trojan that waits until the user starts a session in MSN Messenger and then sends a message with the text SOU GAY (I'm gay in Portuguese) to all the contacts that are active at the moment.
Msnsoug.A 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, e-mail messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.
Msnsoug.A is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
