Threat LevelLow threatDamageHighDistributionNot widespread

Effects 

WTC Survivor does not have any direct effects, as it is not a virus.

Infection strategy 

WTC Survivor does not use any means of infection because it is not a virus.

WTC Survivor aims to provide false data in order to confuse users and get them to spread the word by forwarding the message.

Means of transmission 

WTC Survivor does not use any means of transmission because it is not a virus.

However, WTC Survivor tricks users into voluntarily forwarding the warning message, creating a rumor that spreads like wild fire via e-mail.

There are several versions of the e-mail message, that have the following characteristics and have no attached file:

  • Version 1:
    BIGGGG TROUBLE !!!! DO NOT OPEN "WTC Survivor"

    It is a virus that will erase your whole "C" drive. If you receive an email called "WTC Survivor" do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.dll files) from your computer.

    This is a serious one. It will come to you in the form of an E-Mail from a familiar person. I repeat a friend sent it to me, but called and warned me before I opened it. He was not so lucky and now he can't even start his computer! Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all.
  • Version 2:
    READ ASAP Very Important

    During the next several weeks be VERY cautious about opening or launching any e-mails that refer to the World Trade Center or 9/11 in any way, regardless of who sent it. PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW, "WTC" STANDS FOR THE WORLD TRADE CENTER. REALLY DANGEROUS BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL OPEN IT RIGHT AWAY, THINKING ITS A STORY RELATING TO 9/11! BIG TROUBLE !!!! DO NOT OPEN "cc" It is a virus that will erase your whole "C" drive.. It will come to you in the form of an E-Mail from a familiar person. I repeat, a friend sent it to me, but called and warned me before I opened it.
