I *believe* the attack works as follows:
In windows there an "autorun" feature. If a CDROM or (USB) device has a "autorun.inf" file specifing an executale, that exec will be run, whether your logged in or not, when the disk/device is mounted. In this case the executable simply searches the disk for word files and copies them to the device.
