Panda Security has detected an application whose main function is to turn an executable file into a worm, giving it the capacity to spread itself. The point-and-click toolkit has been designed to make it easier to both create and distribute Trojans. Its aim is to give a Trojan the spread capability ofÃ‚Â a worm but it works with any executable file.
The Trojan2Worm (T2W) toolkit is an eye-catching application and requires minimal skills to use it. By checking different flags, virtually anyone can design a worm with different functionalities. Some functions include the ability to compress infectious files with UPX or even mutate their contents with MuteX. The application also provides the ability for Trojan infection agents to acquire worm-like spreading abilities.
The toolkit is equipped with advanced options to select a certain infection date, or program malware so that it can disable certain options of the Task Manager, the Windows Registry Editor, or different browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Opera.
Worms can be configured to display a message to indicate if they are being run or to activate themselves when Windows is started. It is also possible to enable or disable the infection of removable drives, such as PenDrives, indicating the username and the name of the drive.
The tool seems to have been created in Spain but language can be switched into English, Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan.
