About 3 weeks ago we had a worm that was not picked up by AVG when it arrived, probably because AVG had not updated the definition files to catch it.

About two days later AVG fixed the problem.

The worm manifested itself in two ways: by the modem auto connecting and sending to all sorts of addresses - not just those in our address book. The other way was the AVG popup was saying "transferring files" an explanation of which cannot be found in the AVG site.

Anybody know what it means?

Many thanks

Do you know the name of the Worm?

Your firewall could have stopped this from happening, but you don't mention having one.

The transfering files might be it scanning emails being sent and then sending them, could it be this? I can't remember what it says while an email is being sent, I usually see more of emails being scanned when coming in.
