The W32.HLLW.Moega executable may appear as the following file: wupdated.exe

When it is executed, it does following:
Copies itself as %System%\Wupdated.exe or %System%\Mplupdate.exe.
%System% = C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me), C:\Winnt\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP).

For example, if the infected computer's IP address is A.B.C.D, it will try to connect to all the systems on the local area network, A.B.C.0 ... A.B.C.255.
