Nowobbler is a mass mailing worm, written in both JScript and VBScript.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
The worm spreads in Outlook messages with:
Subject: Fw:important Body: Thought you might be interested in this message, read the attachment for more information Attachment: WOBBLER.TXT.VBEor WOBBLER.TXT.JSE
With 1/5 probability the worm sends message in Spanish, without any attachment:
Subject: Alma Body: No alucines que te amo, cuando en realidad es solo mi corazon quiin lo hace. Porque como ya sabras, mi corazon no manda en mi vida, si asi lo hiciera mi alma estaria perdida.
When executed, the worm shows the Wobbler hoax text.
Then the worm creates a temporary file with a random name and the extension ".wsc" to the Windows System directory. The file is executed and the worm mass mails itself. This file is deleted after the worm has mass mailed itself.
The worm also copies itself to the root of each network drive.
