VBS.Forgotten.A@mm is a Visual Basic Script worm. Like many other worms, it uses Microsoft Outlook, mIRC, and Pirch to spread itself. The worm does not spread as an attachment within Outlook but as an HTML-formatted email that requires the user to enable ActiveX to run its code. Any .vbs and .vbe files are overwritten with a copy of the worm.
