Worm:W32/Rimecud spreads copies of itself to new victims using the infected machine's resources. Rimecud variants may also install a backdoor onto an infected machine that allows a remote attacker to control the affected machine.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
Worm:W32/Rimecud is a large family of worms that typically spread via email, over removable drives (usually by misusing the Windows Autorun function to infect connected USB drives) and over instant messaging (IM) networks.
Once present on a system, Rimecud will create copies of itself and distribute the copies to new victims, either by sending them out as attachments to email messages, in infected removable drives or via IM networks.
Some Rimecud variants also install a backdoor program onto an infected machine that allows a remote attacker to access and control the system.
