Brief Description 

    

MyLife.M is a worm that spreads reaches computers in an e-mail message with the following characteristics:

  • A subject that can be: Fw:Julia Roberts or Old Shakira .
  • One of the following attached files: JULIA_ROBERTS_FUCKING_TOILET.MPEG_.SCR or SHAKIRA_1997_1_MPEG.SCR.

The message text tricks users into opening the attachment by making them believe that it contains an interesting screensaver. However, on doing so, instead of opening the screensaver Mylife.M is run.

When it has infected a computer, MyLife.M tries to delete all the files with a SYS extension from the System directory and the files stored in the D:E: and F: drives.

Visible Symptoms 

    

A clear indication that MyLife.M has reached your computer is a message with one of the following subjects:

  • Fw:Julia Roberts
  • Old Shakira

For more information, consult the section Means of transmission.

Similarly, when it is run MyLife.M opens the media player and displays an error message on screen.
