Looking at a worm

Looking at a worm: Windows Performance Toolkit:  Worm Analysis
Looking at a worm: Windows Performance Toolkit:  Worm Analysis

A worm is standalone malware that does not require any user interaction in order to infect and spread across a network. The focus of a worm is to compromise as many machines in a network as possible. The worm you look at here spreads across a network by finding your Microsoft email contacts and sending spam emails automatically from your computer. These emails contain the worm, which can then be unsuspectingly downloaded onto the new computer device.
