Anti-virus products do not always check for the presence of particular cyber threats – sometimes, they look for a particular behavior that is related to malicious software, and use generic descriptions for such files. One of these descriptions is 'Worm.Python.Agent' – it is typically used to refer to a malicious file that exhibits behavior typical for computer worms. This means that it might be able to self-replicate to removable storage, shared network drives, and other accessible storage. As the name of the detection suggests, the threat is likely to be written in the Python programming language.
Although Worm.Python.Agent is used to describe computer worms, you should know that these threats might exhibit additional harmful traits – often, backdoor Trojans have the ability to spread across the network like a computer worm.
Currently, cybercriminals are abusing the chaos surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak to distribute malicious files that are disguised as leaflets or documents regarding the infamous virus. In many cases, these files might be caught as 'Worm.Python.Agent' by your anti-virus software.
