W32.Netsky.V@mm is a mass-mailing worm that sends itself to the email addresses that it gathers from the files on the computer. This variant does not send an attachment with its email messages, but instead sends a link to an infected computer, attempting to download and run the worm's executable.
The From line of the email is spoofed, and the Subject line and message body vary.
The worm is packed with UPXSh!t v0.07, UPXSh!t v0.06, and UPX 1.24.
