Moe is a worm that infects PE files (with a EXE or SRC extension) that sends itself out via e-mail.
When it has infected a computer, Moe sends e-mail messages, which contain the virus code, to all the contacts in Outlook’s Address Book. It also looks for other e-mail addresses in the files with a HTM or HTML extension it finds in the computer.
Moe is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any warnings or messages that indicate that it has infected a computer.
