Polip worm creeps through P2P networks

MicroWorld Technologies announces that 'Win32.Polip.A' is a polymorphic P2P Worm that infects Portable Executable(PE) files like '.scr' and '.exe', while spreading via P2P networks and File Sharing applications.

Inside the infected PC, Polip.A hides its presence by inserting itself into running processes, which makes it hard to detect and remove, for many AntiVirus solutions. Its encryption and stealth features make matters worse.
