Also Known As:
- IRC/Jeremy.A, Wom32/VBTrojan.gen, I-Worm.Kazus.c [Kaspersky]
W32.Jermy.A is a simple worm that is written in Visual Basic. It attempts to send itself to the addresses in the Microsoft Outlook Address Book; however, examples we have seen fail in this functionality due to bugs in its code. The intended email has a variable subject and an attachment named either 3DText.scr or Kernei32.exe.
This worm also attempts to connect to a predefined IRC server to await instructions from its authors.
