Type:
Worm

This worm appears as the attachment Jer.htm. Opening the attachment in your Internet browser displays a page that contains "The 40 Ways Women Fail in Bed". This is meant to serve as a distraction while the worm does its work in the background. There is a script embedded within the .htm file that allows the worm to spread itself via MS Outlook and mIRC.
