I am not sure of how it was detected for other people, but on my PC, I run
Norton Anti-virus software configured to check email. When I was retrieving
incoming email, it detected the Kakworm, popped up a warning message and put
the offending message into quarantine.
Have good virus protection and keeping the virus signature file up to date
critical in today's cyber environment.
