Technical Description:

This is an autorun.inf created by worms like Win32.Worm.Autorunner or Win32.Worm.RJump and used as an alternative to autorun keys for the malware to ensure it's execution. They are placed in the root of fixed and removable drives and contain the information needed to execute the worm upon access of those drives on systems that have autorun enabled. These kind of files are also used in the spreading process of some worms that copy themselves and create a corresponding autorun.inf file on removable drives like pen drives thus getting executed on other systems on which the infected removable drive will be used.
