    Dear Trend Micro customer,

    As of May 11, 2005 4:30 AM (Pacific Daylight Time/GMT -8:00), TrendLabs has declared a Medium Risk Virus Alert to control the spread of WORM_WURMARK.J. TrendLabs has received several infection reports indicating that this malware is spreading in France, India, Taiwan, and Singapore.

    This memory-resident worm propagates via email messages. Upon execution, it drops a copy of itself in the Windows system folder using a random file name.

    It also drops a randomly named (Dynamic Link Library) DLL file in the Windows system folder, which is a component of IESpy, a spyware program.

    This worm has a keylogging capability. It saves the logs typed by the user in a dropped random DLL file.

    It drops several .ZIP files in the Windows system folder as email attachment.
