A later version of the worm sends emails using the following words:
"Anna"
"Raquel Darian"
"Xena"
"Xuxa"
"Suzete"
"famous"
"celebrity rape"
"leather"
"sex"
"sexy"
"hot"
"hottest"
"cum"
"cumshot"
"horny"
"anal"
"gay"
"oral" etc.

If Hybris has no PlugIn function, it sends a message without any subject or sender.

Technical DetailsWhen activated, W95/Hybris.PI.11 tries to infect WSOCK32.DLL in %Windir%/%Systemdir%. If it can not infect the file directly, because it is already in use, the worm creates an infected copy of WSOCK32.DLL. The file name has 8 characters and no extension.

It registers the new WSOCK32.DLL file in WININIT.INI, for autostart.

The modified WSOCK32.DLL file monitors the Internet activity and tries to email an .exe or .scr worm copy.
