W32.HLLW.Sodabot has backdoor Trojan capability, which allows a hacker to gain control of the compromised computer. The worm can update itself by checking for newer versions over the Internet. W32.HLLW.Sodabot disguises itself as a popular movie, game, or software file. The worm attempts to spread across KaZaA and Morpheus file-sharing networks, by tricking KaZaA and Morpheus users into downloading the program and opening it. It also attempts to spread itself through the Internet Relay Chat (IRC).
This threat is compressed with UPX and ASPack.
