mIRC/Salim.A

mIRC/Salim.A is created in the directory in which the IRC client mIRC is installed by the worm VBS/VBSWG.AQ.  This file is harmless by itself but it contains a script ensuring spreading of the worm VBS/VBSWG.AQ by means of DCC.  mIRC/Salim.A offers download of the worm’s copy through DCC to each user who uses the same channel on which the infected client is.
