W32/Hai.A

Spreading

The worm looks for computers that have a shared "Windows" directory - i.e. the Windows directory can be written to from other machines on the network. If it finds such a computer, it will copy itself there, and add an entry in the WIN.INI file so the worm is loaded during startup.
