Nugache.A copies itself into the Windows system folder called MSTC.EXE, generates Windows registry entries, and opens up several ports for hackers to gain access to the infected computer. Later on it sends a instant message to all your online MSN/Windows Live Messenger contacts asking them to accept a file named ATTACHMENT, BACKUP, DETAILS, DOCUMENTS or FORWARDED.
What ever you do, do not accept any of these files as they are viruses and can harm your computer. The threat maybe low, but the virus can trigger off your computer to download more serious viruses. So if you have the virus on your computer, it may cause little damage or serious damage, depending on your circumstances.
