What is a Worm?

A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program. It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computer terminals on the network) and it may do so without any user intervention. Unlike a virus, it does not need to attach itself to an existing program. Worms almost always cause harm to the network, if only by consuming bandwidth, whereas viruses almost always corrupt or modify files on a targeted computer.

More about Worm Conficker:

The Conficker worm spreads itself through a buffer overflow vulnerability in the Server Service of Windows computers. The worm uses a specially RPC request to execute code on the target computer.

When executed on a computer, Conficker disables some services like Windows Automatic Update, Windows Security Center, Windows Defender and Windows Error Reporting. Then it connects to a server, where it receives further orders to execute, gather personal information, and downloads and installs additional malware onto the victim's computer. The worm also attaches itself to certain Windows processes like svchost.exe, explorer.exe and services.exe.
