File sharing worms are programs which exploit the fact that file-sharers do not know exactly what they are downloading. Usually these worms copy themselves into a shared folder with an unpretentious name. If a different user on the same network downloads files from this shared folder, then the person may download the virus without his or her knowledge, and then copy and repeat itself.
