Technical Details



Variant:Pica.A

When executed, the worm copies itself to the Windows System directory as "Ds9.vbs". Then it modifies the registry so that it will be executed each time the system is restarted.

After that the worm will send itself to every recipient in every addressbook using Outlook.

The message that the worm sends looks like this:

Subject:

 Attachment: Ds9.vbs

After mass mailing, the worm marks the registry so that the mass mailing will not be done again.
