Systems Affected: Windows


W32.Resdoc is a worm that periodically attempts to copy itself to drive A. It also copies itself as %windir%\Smss.exe.

NOTE:
%windir% is a variable. The worm locates the main Windows installation folder (by default this is C:\Windows or C:\Winnt) and uses it as a destination folder.
