Does anyone knows a way to exploit this worm to get access to the system?

Maybe it's just me, but I'd worry more about letting the client know
they have an infected and owned system on their network than trying to
figure out if I could further exploit it.  Especially if it's likely
that the infection is actively being used by someone.
