What is the Win32 Heur Virus?

Win32 Heur (heuristic), also known as the Win/32 Heur virus, is a high-risk self-replicating polymorphic trojan. It usually installs onto Windows systems without the knowledge of the user. It infects computers through suspicious file-sharing applications, spam emails, corrupt media files, and ****-related sites. The Win32 Heur alters the computer’s Win32 files and installs more worms, Trojans, and other viruses into the infected PC.
