Attachment: 11september.exe

Technical DetailsWorm/Chet is a massmailer. But due to a programming error, its email sending routine can not work on most of the Windows systems.

If the attachment is opened, the worm copies itself in the Windows system directory (eg C:\Windows\System\ or C:\Windows\System32\) with the name SYNCHOST1.EXE and makes the following run entry in the registry:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]ICQ1= C:\Windows\%System%\synchost1.exe
Worm/Chet also makes a copy in C:\ named 11september.exe, which is deleted after infection.
