Virus information (Worm)


A worm is a program that spreads over network. Unlike a virus, worm does not attach itself to a host program. It uses up the computer resources, modifies system settings and eventually puts the system down. With the proliferation of Internet, worm can utilize email systems to replicate, e.g. by emailing itself out as an attachment to other users, within a short period of time.
