Brief Description 

    

Valcard is a worm that spreads by copying itself, without infecting other files.

 

Valcard does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.

 

Visible Symptoms 

    

The first symptom of the presence of this worm on the computer -please note that this does not necessarily mean infection has occurred- is an e-mail message with the following characteristics:

 

Subject: any of the following:

 

Secret Admirer
Somebody Loves You
Romance from Afar
Love at first sight
...when sleepers wake and yet still dream...
Be Mine ?!
Yours Always
Happy Valentines
From Me To You
Thy eternal summer shall not fade
I can express no kinder sign of love, than this kind kiss
Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance
O, beauty, till now I never knew thee!
Romantic gesture

 

Message body: any of the following:

 

Good night, sweet prince, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest

It's that time of year again.

Hi
I feel like a child sending you this card
but I just had to do it.

...and every breath I ever took,
every tear I ever wept,
Every star I wished upon,
Seemed nothing until now.

In this life we cannot do great things.
We can only do small things with great love.
