That's because the original poster got the name wrong.  Also got the
description wrong- it doesn't "attach itself to dnet", and dnet isn't
the propagation vector.  See

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.hllw.bymer.html

for the full story.

And don't get freaked out.  This one is old news- discovered over a year
ago (and discussed here, I believe).
