> Virus Name: VBS/Bubbleboy
>
> Virus Characteristics:
> This is an Internet worm that requires Internet Explorer 5 with Windows
> Scripting Host installed (WSH is standard in Windows 98 and Windows 2000
> installations). It does not run on Windows NT due to hard-coded
> limitations. The Internet worm is embedded within an email message of HTML
> format and does not contain an attachment. This worm is written in VB
> Script. There are two variants; the .b variant is encrypted.
>
> <P>This worm affects only English and Spanish installation of Windows.<P>
>
> <P>In MS Outlook, this worm requires that you "open" the email. It will
> not run if using "Preview Pane".
>
> <P>In MS Outlook Express, the worm is activated if "Preview Pane" is used!
>
> <P>In both the above, if security settings for Internet Zone in IE5 are
> set to High, the worm will not be executed. The vulnerability exploited
> by this worm has been addressed by Microsoft with a security patch.
> Installing this Internet Explorer patch will prevent the execution of this
> worm under default security settings. Network Associates recommends to
> apply this patch for all desktops running IE.

> <P><a
> href="http://www.microsoft.com/security/Bulletins/ms99-032.asp">Microsoft
> "scriplet.typelib/Eyedog" Patch</a>
>
> <P>After the VB Script executes, it writes the file UPDATE.HTA to the
> local machine and during the next Windows startup, the .HTA file is
> invoked. The UPDATE.HTA file is coded to do the following-
>
> <P>* Change the registered owner via the registry to "BubbleBoy"
>
> <P>* Change the registered organization to "Vandelay Industries"
>
> <P>* Send itself embedded in an email message to EVERY contact in EVERY
> EMAIL ADDRESS BOOK of MS Outlook
>
> <P>* Sets the registry key to indicate that the email distribution has
> occurred. (Email distribution will not be repeated.)
>
>
> <P>The email is a message with the following information:
