Technical DetailsWorm/Yaha.Q copies itself in Windows System directory as: EXELOADER.EXE and WINTASK32.EXE. It makes the following autostart registry entries:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices "WindowsTask"=C:\%WinDIR%\%SystemDIR%\wintask32.exe

The following registry entries are modified:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Snakes"Author" = R0xx

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Snakes"Version" = 2
