Threats type: Parasite
Parasite is a typical resident of file exchange networks. It is rather dangerous to use flash drive for such networks. An infected computer becomes a hotbed of parasites so it is strongly recommended not to insert foreign flash drives into the PC infected by parasites. Parasite is a malicious program which uses foreign valid program the same way as a biological parasite uses host for its life and reproduction. Parasite can’t work as a standalone program and affects executable programs and self-extracting archives. It is nearly impossible to notice a file infected by parasite.
