Blackworm is also known as Grew.a, Grew.b, Blackmal.e, Nyxem.e, Nyxem.d, Mywife.d, Tearec.a and CME-24. It is an extremely dangerous and rapidly spreading Internet worm, which propagates by e-mail via messages with infected attachments and through unprotected network shares. The user can accidentally infect a computer by opening a malicious e-mail attachment or running an infected executable file.

Once executed, Blackworm secretly installs itself to the system and runs a spreading routine. The worm uses own mail engine to send bogus letters to all the addresses it finds in local text and spreadsheet documents, presentations, databases and other similar files. It also creates infected files in unprotected network shares located in the same network or domain. Blackworm e-mail messages can have the following subjects and the following bodies:

The parasite’s payload is large and destructive. Blackworm terminates active security-related processes, prevents installed antivirus software from running on every system startup. It also deletes essential executables and library files related to popular antiviruses and other security-related programs and some file sharing applications. All this corrupts installed software and compromises system security. On the third day of every month, Blackwork destroys all text documents (.doc, .pdf), spreadsheets (.xls), presentations (.ppt, .pps), databases (.mdb, .mde), archives (.rar, .zip), images (.psd) and memory dumps (.dmp) it finds in the compromised system. This may lead to catastrophic data losses.

Blackworm automatically runs on every Windows startup.

    If you already have a antiVirus Software package installed but installed it after you were infected, how do you then delete it??

    I woke up today and everything was gone on my computer that was personal to me (word docs, favorites etc., etc) most programs were still there, most desktop shortcuts gone. I do not know if my computer was attached for my personal information and wiped out in the process, if a virus like Kamasutra hit or if the computer crashed (never having done so before, a Dell with Windows 2000nt). I need to recover the data if possible. I have Mcafee updated and had not opened any strange files. Yesterday I received 268 emails as responses to something I sent but actually did not send. I received messages that the computer was running out of virtual memmory which I increased to the max. I checked my users of the computer and found there which I did not recall and I removed it. Now when I try to download a virus tool I get the message internet explorer was not able to open this internet site and I cannot download anything. Any idea what is going on ? I cannot download fix tools because the activex file is disabled, I enable it and the download fails because it is somehow swtiched back to disabled. thanks
