Panda Software Reports the Appearance of Holar.H Worm
The Virus Laboratory at Panda Software has detected the appearance of a new worm called Holar.H (W32/Holar.H). This malicious code spreads rapidly via e-mail and uses what has been dubbed “social engineering’ to trick the user into running the attached file that contains the worm.
Holar.H is a dangerous worm, as it can delete all the files from the affected computer. This only happens after the worm has been run over 30 times on the affected computer. For this reason, it is important to remember that the worm is run every time the computer is started or the file that contains Holar is run.
The subject, text and name of the attached files of the message in which Holar.H reaches computers are variable, as they are selected at random from a long list of possibilities, which include the following:

A list of all the possible characteristics of the message is available on Panda web site.
In addition to one of the files listed above, which contain the worm’s code, the e-mail message also includes another attachment, which is selected at random from the affected computer. Similarly, the e-mail address of the sender of the message is usually Dispatch@McAfee.com.
