Do you know what Woospi is?
Woospi is a dangerous computer worm infection that may spread through removable media such as USB drives. Woospi uses the autorun.inf file to spread through these devices onto the computer that the infected drive or media is plugged into. It does this through the Autorun function built into Windows where the drive is automatically opened allowing the Woospi infection to spread.
In non-techie terms:
Woospi is known to come from fake email messages as a Microsoft Powerpoint file attachment. Currently Woospi may be called W32.Woospi by other security vendors and remains to be a serious threat to your system. You must remove Woospi or W32.Woospi once it is detected to prevent harm to your system or spreading Woospi to others through a removable drive.
