W32.Appix.Worm is a worm that attempts to spread across file-sharing networks such as KaZaA and eDonkey2000. The worm infects PHP and PHTML files by appending code that is designed to infect other PHP, PHTML, HTM, and HTML files. It also uploads the W32.Appix.Worm to a client computer that visits the infected Web site. Also, W32.Appix.Worm contains it own SMTP client engine that permits it to replicate using email. The email may arrive with the following characteristics:
Attachment: Test.scr (175,112 bytes or 176,128 bytes)
