Here is a brief overview of the virus:
- First Discovered: July 17, 2001
- The virus is spread by E-Mail. The email will appear to be coming directly from the individual whose machine has been infected.
- The most common form of this virus inputs a random subject line (from a file randomly chosen on the victim's hard drive.) and adds something similar to this text to the body of the message:
Hi! How are you?
I send you this file in order to have your advice
See you later. Thanks
- This virus will go through the user's inbox and address book to reply to any email address it can find. Anytime the computer is on the internet, it will continue to send out copies of itself.
- This worm has the possiblity of large-scale file deletion and distruction, although there appears to be a bug in the worm which normally prevents this from happening.
