Technical Details

The Yamanner worm activates by just opening an infected email message with Internet Explorer. To do this it uses a 0-day vulnerability in the Yahoo! Mail system.

Yamanner builds its email messages and sends them to the infected user's contacts. The sent emails look as follows:

  • Subject: New Graphic Site Body: Note: forwarded message attached.

The worm resides inside the email body. It also tries to open a web page in another browser window.
