Brief Description 

    

Festival is a worm that does not have any destructive effects, which spreads via e-mail, shared network drives, the chat  program IRC and through KaZaA, a P2P (peer to peer) file sharing program.

When it spreads via e-mail, Festival is easy to identify, as the message carrying the worm always has the  subject Where are you? and contains the following text:
Hi!
Where are you?
I enjoy speaking with you
:)
Simdi icinden buda kim diyorsundur:)

Visible Symptoms
