Virus Name  : I-Worm/Blebla

Alias             : I-Worm/Verona, Romeo Juliet Worm

Virus type    : Internet worm

Threat level : Medium

Virus details :

                     I-Worm/Blebla aka I-Worm/Verona is an e-mail worm that exploits security vulnerabilities in Microsoft Internet Explorer. The infected e-mail contains two attachments namely MyRomeo.exe and MyJuliet.CHM. The attachments are embedded within the e-mail and it won't visible to the user. The worm is written in Borland Delphi and compressed with UPX file compressor.

                     When viewing the e-mail, the HTML code is executed first. The script stored within the HTML executes the CHM file. Then the CHM file takes control and executes MyRomeo.exe. It opens the windows address book and sends e-mail to all the users with worm attachments. It uses different SMTP servers located in Poland to send e-mail and also posts messages to alt.comp.virus news group.

The subject line is randomly selected from the following text:

I-Worm/Blebla.B

                     Blebla.B is a modified variant of Blebla worm. It is also packed with UPX compressor, uses the same techniques to infect. The infected e-mail contains two attachments namely XRomeo.exe and XJuliet.CHM. It changes several registry keys when infecting the machine and it should be fixed before deleting the main worm file SYSRNJ.EXE stored in Windows folder.

                     To clean this worm, use REGEDIT.EXE and change the registry entry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.reg ="regfile" manually [In some cases, you should rename REGEDIT.EXE to REGEDIT.COM to edit registry]. Now you can run *.REG files. Then copy the following contents in a text file with .REG extension and double click it using explorer. Now the registry settings fixed. Then run SoloLite and delete all infected files. Solo windows version won't require any manual recovery. It automatically fixes all registry entries.
