By new photos from my party! ... is a VIRUS
Bill Williams


Edit MessageUploaded - 28 Jan 2002 12:32

W32/MyParty-A is a Windows 32 email-aware worm which arrives as an email with the following characteristics:

Subject: new photos from my party!

Message text:

Hello!

My party... It was absolutely amazing!
I have attached my web page with new photos!
If you can please make color prints of my photos. Thanks!

Attached filename: www.myparty.yahoo.com

Some people may be fooled into believing the attached file is a link to a website. If the attached file is executed the worm sends a copy of itself to everybody in the Windows Address book (except the current user) using a built in SMTP engine.

It gets the SMTP server information from the registry key: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager\Accounts\00000001

The worm also sends an email to napster@gala.net to track its spread.
