Multidropper.AXY is a Trojan that drops on the affected computer the Trojan detected as Ranky.DH and the worm detected as Sdbot.BWJ.
Multidropper.AXY is a self-extracting file, that is, a compressed file with an embedded executable to decompress itself.
Multidropper.AXY 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, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.
Multidropper.AXY is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
