11/29: JS/Spawn-C an Encoded Worm

11/29: JS/Spawn-C an Encoded Worm
November 29, 2004

JS/Spawn-C is a version of the JS/Spawn-A worm, which is encoded to prevent detection. JS/Spawn-A moves the internet browser Window across the Desktop and gives it the effect of bouncing back when the boundary of the Desktop is reached.

When the script is closed, several instances of the browser are launched to open the file index.htm, index.html or index2.htm.
