Brief Description 

    

Redesi.D is a worm that sends out two e-mail messages to all the entries in Outlook’s Address Book.

The first message has no attachment, but it announces that the user will receive a second message, which will contain a virus-free attachment.

However, when the file attached to the second message is run, Redesi.D sends itself out via e-mail and deletes  the content of the C: drive in the infected computer.

Visible Symptoms 

    

A clear indication that you have received Redesi.D is an e-mail message that contains the following text:

Hey
Well, here is the email I told you I was going to send.
I’ll speak to you more later. The boss is coming
.

For more information about the message carrying Redesi.D,consult the section Means of transmission.

In addition, when Redesi.D has activated, it will display the text following text the next time the computer is started up: with a fool no spend, or be counted as his freind.
