Technical Details

The worm is a PE executable file 393 kilobytes long, written in Delphi. The worm's file is not packed.

Installation to system

When run, the worm copies itself as FUNNY.SCR file to Windows folder and also as STARTWIN.EXE file to the startup folder of a current user. Then the worm creates a startup key for its SCR file in the Registry:

[HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop]
"SCRNSAVE.EXE" = "%WinDir%\funny.scr"
 

The worm creates the M.TXT file in the root of C: drive to verify that it has suitable access rights.

Spreading in e-mails

Before spreading the worm scans certain files on a hard disk to harvest victims' e-mail addresses. The following files are scanned:

Deleted Items.dbx
Inbox.dbx
Outbox.dbx
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\ypager.log
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\ypager2.log
 

To send e-mails the worm uses either the default user's SMTP server or the hardcoded list of SMTP servers:

mail.iasi.rdsnet.ro
smtp.dnt.ro
scentra.dntcj.ro
relay-1.dntis.ro
mail.easynet.ro
relay1.România.eu.net
mail-relay.eu.net
smtp.fx.ro
ns.matco.ro
mail.mailbox.ro
mx.kappa.ro
mx2.kappa.ro
mx1.pcnet.ro
mail.rdsnet.ro
mail.rdslink.ro
tag.starnets.ro
mail.totalnet.ro
relay.totalnet.ro
mail.xnet.ro
mail.remote.xnet.ro
mail.remote1.xnet.ro
mail.pcnet.ro
smtp.xnet.ro
smtp.home.ro
mail.home.ro
relay.n0i.net
omega.tuiasi.ro
hal.cs.tuiasi.ro
 

The worm sends messages with different subjects, body texts and attachment names. Here's the list of possible e-mail subjects:

Poza de la mare
Antivirus
Sex in camin
Faza cu camila
De ce mor mai repede curiosii...
Antimanele
 

Here's the list of possible e-mail body texts:

Ti-am trimis ultima poza de la mare. Asta e?
Asta e ultimul antivirus. Ar trebui sa rezolve toate problemele.
Ioana, sex in grup in camin. Cred ca o stii si tu ;)
:)))))))
Nu deschide acest mesaj! E numai pentru persoanele prea curioase!
Daca sunteti nu mai suportati manelele la servici, tramvai, taxi, metrou, etc., trimiteti acest mesaj la toti prietenii dvs. !
Va multumesc (din suflet).
 

Here's the list of possible worm's attachment names:

scan_picture_0001._JPG.exe
antivirus.exe
ioana_divx._AVI.exe
camila.exe
curiosii.exe
antimanele.exe
 

The worm fakes the sender's e-mail address. It can be one of the following:

alexandra@yahoo.com
ionut@yahoo.com
mariana@yahoo.com
alice@yahoo.com
bia@yahoo.com
Ionut Popovici@xnet.ro
Georgiana@fantasy.ro
office@bitdefender.ro
antimanele@antimanele.go.ro
Payload

The worm has a nasty payload. When it scans files on a hard disk, it checks the files with the following extensions:

.mp3
.wma
.avi
.wav
.mid
.midi
.asf
.mpg
.mpeg
.jpeg
.jpg
.bmp
.rar
.zip
.ace
 

If these files contain any of the following strings in their names, they are deleted from a hard drive:
