INF/Conficker

INF/Conficker Description

INF/Conficker is an infection allowing the Conficker Worm to spread through Autorun.inf files. Through this propogating process, INF/Conficker is able to infect removable drives. Any system that the INF/Conficker infected drive is given access to, is vulnerable to being infected with Conficker. The Autorun.inf process is able to automatically execute a newly attached drive such as an USB flash device. Mapped network drives are also vulnerable to spreading infections through INF/Conficker infected Autorun.inf files.
