DEFINITION
Worm

An independent program that replicates itself by copying from one system to another, usually over a network without the use of a host file. Like a virus, a worm may damage data directly, or it may degrade system performance by consuming system resources or even shutting a network down, but, in contrast to viruses, does not require the spreading of an infected host file. Usually the worm will release a document that already has the “worm” macro inside the document.
