Bizex has a range of payloads, all of which are dangerous, & which can lead to the leaking of confidential information. Specifically, the worm scans the infected computer, & harvests information on payment systems which are installed. Then, unnoticed by the user, it sends these details to a remote anonymous server. Additionally, Bizex intercepts information transmitted by HTTPS (an encrypted communications protocol, which is used, in particular, to transmit financial transactions) & also log in details for a range of email systems e.g. Yahoo. This information is also sent to the remote anonymous server.
Would you like to know more? PivX points out that Qwik-Fix protects (To some degree at least) against this, though be sure to check Kaspersky for pertinent info.
[COLOR=#1951B9]It should be noted that the worm only attacks original ICQ programs (with the exception of Web ICQ), and alternative instant messaging systems, such as Miranda and Trillian, are immune[/COLOR]
