Brief Description 

    

Aliz is a worm that reaches computers in an e-mail message with an attached file called WHATEVER.EXE.

It is very easy to become infected by this virus, as it automatically activates when the message carrying the worm is viewed in Outlook’s Preview Pane.

The effects of  Aliz are not considered very dangerous, as its only aim is to spread rapidly to other computers without carrying out any destructive actions (although mass mailing of this worm could collapse mail accounts). It does this by sending itself out to all the contacts in the Address Book.
