Email-Worm.Win32.Abotus or Abotus is a Worm that spreads through internet with email on Win32 Operating Systems.


Abotus is the worm virus spreading via the Internet being attached to infected emails. The worm itself is Windows PE EXE file about 18Kb of length, written in Delphi.

The infected messages have:

Subject: About us
I have included a program which illustrates my opinion about things you wrote me few days ago
Attachment: [may be different]

The worm activates from infected email only in case a user clicks on attached file.

The worm does not install itself to the system and is not activated anymore (except when the user clicks on attached email again).

To send infected messages the worm uses Windows MAPI functions and "answers" messages from Email boxes.
