Subject: Important information for you. Read it immediately !
Hi !

Here is my photo, that you asked for yesterday.

Attachment: MYPHOTO.JPG .EXE

The worm copies itself to Windows System folder with names L32X.EXE and VXD32V.EXE and in the StartUp folder with the name DLLXW.EXE, adds the registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\load32 = L32X.EXE

Also it adds to the shell line (in SYSTEM.INI on Windows 95, 98 and Me, or in the registry on Windows NT, 2000 and XP):

Shell = %SYSTEMDIR%\vxd32.exe

A keylogger and clipboard monitor is also installed, and the worm listens for commands on port 2283 and opens a FTP server on port 10000.

The mass-mailing component collects e-mail addresses from files with extensions .htm, .wab, .html, .dbx, .tbb, .abd and sends e-mails using its own sending engine.
