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: Hi check This... Body: Hello..your Game is Over..By Q from Lee Attachment: Ds9.vbs
