    Technical Description

    Summary

    W32.Beagle.AR@mm is a mass-mailing worm that uses its own SMTP engine to spread.

    The email attachment is a downloader, similar to the Mitglieder family of Trojans, that downloads the worm from an external source.

    The worm also contains backdoor functionality, opening TCP port 81 and UDP port 81 which allow the infected computer to be used as an email relay.
