2/24: Agobot-QE a Backdoor Trojan & Worm
February 24, 2005

W32/Agobot-QE is a backdoor Trojan and worm that spreads to computers protected by weak passwords. Each time the Trojan is run it attempts to connect to a remote IRC server and join a specific channel.

The Trojan then runs continuously in the background, allowing a remote intruder to access and control the computer via IRC channels.
