    the cut and past is from the following link..

    Name: Worm/Shakira
    Alias: I-Worm.Lee-Based
    Type: Internet Worm
    Discovered: May 26, 2002
    Size: 7.995KB
    ITW: Yes


    Description:
    ------------
    Worm/Shakira is an Internet worm that spreads through e-mail by using addresses it collects in the Microsoft Outlook Address Book.

    The worm arrives through e-mail in the following format:

    Subject: Shakira's Pictures
    Body: Hi :
    i have sent the photos via attachment
    have funn...
    Attachment: ShakiraPics.jpg.vbs

    If executed, the worm copies itself in the \windows\ directory under the filename "ShakiraPics.jpg.vbs", this file searches for all *.vbs files to overwrite with its viral code. Additionally, the file "Readme.vbs" gets added in the \Recycled\ directory. So that it gets run each time a user restart their computer the following registry key gets added:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    Registry=wscript.exe C:\WINDOWS\ShakiraPics.jpg.vbs %


    The following message box is displayed:




    Worm/Shakira also spreads via the Internet Rely Chat (IRC) network. It modifies the file "Script.ini" to the \Mirc\ directory if it exists to do so.
