Severe |Detected with Windows Defender Antivirus

Aliases: Possible_Otorun8 (Trend Micro)


Windows Defender detects and removes this threat.
This threat is a self-propagating program that can spread itself from one computer to another. Worms may spread themselves through various channels to compromise new computers. Typically, worms may spread directly by copying themselves to removable or network drives, or by attempting to exploit particular vulnerabilities on targeted computers.
Worms also often attempt to spread through platforms that require user interaction to run. They may send themselves as an attachment to an email, instant message, or send a link to a copy of themselves in the body of a message. In these cases, the message needs to be convincing enough to encourage the victim to click on the link or attachment and run or download a copy of the worm.
NOTE: On March 31, 2017, an incorrect detection for our cloud-based protection for Worm:Win32/Bluber.A was identified and immediately fixed.
To ensure that this issue is remediated, you can do a forced daily update to download your Microsoft antimalware and antispyware software. The fix has been deployed in signature build 1.239.530.0 on March 31, 2017, 2:50 PM PDT.
