Downloader.BHV is a Trojan that downloads five files with a false GIF extension from several URLs of http://nursingkorea.co.kr/images/ and then it runs them.
Downloader.BHV 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.
Downloader.BHV is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
