Next the worm copies itself to the root of each network drive, and sends itself to all recipients in all address books using Outlook. Messages that VBS/SSIWG.A sends have the following characterstics:
Subject: I'am missing U Body: Could u remember me ? Attachment: Y072QWV.VBS
Note: The name of the attachment can be other that "Y072QWV.VBS".The worm uses a counter in the registry, so the mass mailing will happen only every 20th run.
