auto-reply: If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about,don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;
... ... more look to the attachment.

Ravmond.exe
WinGate.exe
WinDriver.exe

The worm makes the autostart registry entry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run winhelp %system%\winhelp.exeWinGate initialize %system%\WinGate.exe -remoteshellRemote Procedure Call Locator rundll32.exe reg678.dll ondll_regProgram in Windows %system%\iexplore.exe

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows run RAVMOND.EXE

Then it changes: HKEY_CLASS_ROOT\txtfile\shell\open\command into: winrpc.exe %1
The worm will be activated every time a text file is opened.
