W32.HLLW.Dax is a worm that spreads through open shares across the network. It attempts to replicate itself to that share as the file "Ordin Popescu.exe."
It also contains a backdoor that enables a remote attacker to connect to and control the computer. By default it opens port 3256 on the compromised computer.
