    Worm_redist.e

    I have just found this on FOUR computers on my Network!

    WORM_REDIST.E is a non-destructive worm that spreads via email using Microsoft Outlook, and via peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing networks. It also has password-stealing capabilities. It runs on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, and XP.

    Upon execution, this worm displays the following message box:

    Error Starting Progam
    A required .DLL file, MSVBM60.DLL, was not found.

    It drops the following copies of itself into the Windows folder:

    Ircskins.skn
    Msgsf32.exe
    Msipxc32.exe
    Scrset32.scr
    Winscz32.exe
    Winsetr32.exe
    It drops the following copies of itself into the Windows system folder:

    Icmpmgr32.exe
    Lnkscrc32.scr
    Msgmain32.exe
    Msgsvc32.pif
    Msrun32.exe
    Svcmsg32.pif
    Winlnkf32.pif
    It drops the following copy into the Startup folder:

    Startw32.pif
    The worm creates registry entries that allow its dropped copy, WINSCZ32.EXE, to execute at every Windows startup.

    This worm propagates by sending a copy of itself to all email addresses found in the infected users' address book. It uses Microsoft Outlook (MAPI) to send email with varying details. A sample of the email it sends, are as follows:

    Subject: A new screensaver
    Message Body: Take a look at this new screensaver in the attachments that I downloaded from the internet a while ago. If you like it, try setting it as your system screensaver Cya!
    Attachment: 3DFish.scr

    Subject: Your file
    Message Body: Here is that file that you asked for (in the attachments). Sorry that I sent it late, I had trouble finding it on the computer.
    Attachment: Picture2.pif

    This worm also attempts to propagate to other P2P and chat clients. To do so, it drops the following copies of itself:

    Bruce Almighty (Downloader).pif
    Legally Blonde 2 (Downloader).pif
    Movie - Finding Nemo (Downloader).pif
    Movie - Terminator 3 (Downloader).pif
    Movie - The Hulk (Downloader).pif
    Movie - The Italian Job (Downloader).pif
    Sinbad - Legend of the Seven Seas (Downloader).pif
    into the following paths, if they exist:

    %Program Files%\BearShare\Shared
    %Program Files%\Grokster\My Grokster
    %Program Files%\ICQ\Shared Files
    %Program Files%\Kazaa Lite\My Shared Folder
    %Program Files%\Kazaa\My Shared Folder
    %Program Files%\KMD\My Shared Folder
    %Program Files%\Limewire\Shared
    %Program Files%\Morpheus\My Shared Folder
    %Program Files%\Overnet\Incoming
    %Program Files%\Rapigator\Share
    %Program Files%\Shareaza\Downloads
    %Program Files%\Tesla\Files
    %Program Files%\WinMX\My Shared Folder
    %Program Files%\XoloX\Downloads
    This worm also drops randomly named files into the following paths:

    \My Music
    \My Documents\My Music
    This worm also attempts to capture and send cached passwords to a remote malicious user. This function only applies on systems running Windows 95 and 98, since the API used is not available on NT-based systems. It appears that the information is being sent to the following email address:
    Zed_rRlf@hotmail.com

    I got this info from Trend Macro.
