    This new variant has the same functionalities as the .c variant. It uses different file names to write to the local machine. The file size is different.

    This is a mass-mailing worm with the following characteristics:

    contains its own SMTP engine to construct outgoing messages
    harvests email addresses from the victim machine
    the From: address of messages is spoofed
    contains a remote access component (notification is sent to hacker)

    there is also a w32/beagle.c and a beagle.e
