    I can't wait! I want to decompile it and see what she is made of. Plus I don't feel loved enough at the moment.

    It has hit the university of Kansas. There is a big warning on our homepage. Lookout everyone!!! I'm going to be using Telnet for my e-mail until Norton comes out with a fix...

    What the ILOVEYOU virus does

    I read this on www.avp.com

    I-Worm.LoveLetter is a Visual Basic Script worm that is spreading through internet via an Microsoft Outlook e-mail message that reads as a chain letter . The worm uses the Outlook e-mail application to spread.

    I-Worm.LoveLetter is also a overwriting Visual Basic Script virus, and
    it can spread itself using mIRC client as well.

    Technical Details:
    When the worm is executed, it first copies itself to Windows System
    directory as:

    - MSKernel32.vbs
    - LOVE-LETTER-FOR-YOU.TXT.vbs

    and to Windows directory:

    - Win32DLL.vbs

    Then it adds the registry keys:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\MSKernel32 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices\Win32DLL

    The worm replaces the Internet Explorer home page with a link to
    an executable program, "WIN-BUGSFIX.exe" and creates a HTML file, "
    LOVE-LETTER-FOR-YOU.HTM", to the Windows System directory.

    I-Worm.LoveLetter will use Outlook to mail a copy of itself to everyone in each
    address book.

    The message will be addressed:

    Subject: ILOVEYOU
    Body: kindly check the attached LOVELETTER coming from me.
    Attachment: LOVE-LETTER-FOR-YOU.TXT.vbs

    The worm then searches for file with an extension of .jpeg, .mp3, .mp2,.jpg .js, .jse, .css, .wsh, .sct, and .hta on local and remote drives andoverwrites them with itself. Once overwritten the worm changes the extension of the overwritten files to .vbs or .vbe.

    It killed our exchange server. Luckily I'm not MIS. We may be back up tomorrow. A few unsuspecting trainers and project managers opened it. I had 200 inbound copies of the message in my inbox when I got in. It also distributed to 200+ of our customers, because we have a global exchange group to send out broadcast messages to our customers. Ha Ha Ha!!

    Whew, we got lucky on this one. One of our IT counterparts in Ireland phoned us first thing in the morning and warned us about it. We still had a couple of users open it, but we didn't have to shut down the Exchange Server.

    No problem goff, and for everyone else, here's another heads up; some joker out there changed the subject line and file attachment, ie, a copy cat. IF YOU GET A EMAIL THAT SAYS 'JOKE', AND THE ATTACHED FILE IS 'VERY FUNNY', DO NOT OPEN IT!!! DELETE IT AT ONCE. This is coming second hand, from a NBC corespondence on my local am station. According to here, this just started going out this evening, so watch out.

    Damn crack babies. . .
