- If your computer insults you, it has been
infected by the new Cisum.A worm -
Virus Alerts, by Panda Software (http://www.pandasoftware.com)

Madrid, January 26, 2005 - PandaLabs has detected the appearance of Cisum.A,
a worm whose most distinguishing characteristic is that it insults the user
by displaying the following message on screen "YOU ARE AN IDIOT," while
playing an MP3 audio file that repeats the same phrase.

Cisum.A can only spread automatically across computer networks. If a network
user runs the file carrying Cisum.A, this worm copies itself under the name
ProjectX.exe to the root directory of the shared drives on the computer.

At the same time, it displays a window containing the text: "YOU ARE AN
IDIOT," and constantly plays the aforementioned MP3 audio file the worm has
previously generated on the system.

Cisum.A also ends the processes belonging to antivirus programs and other IT
security applications, leaving the computer vulnerable to attack from other
viruses or hackers. What's more, it creates several entries in the Windows
Registry in order to ensure that it is run whenever the computer starts up.
