Technical Details


Cxover.A infects devices over Microsoft's ActiveSync protocol. If the Cxover.A binary is executed on a Windows Mobile device, it looks for the PC over the ActiveSync connection and copies itself to the PC so that it will start automatically at next boot.

If Cxover.A is executed on a Windows PC it will search for any handled devices connected over ActiveSync and copy itself there.
