                     While opening the e-mail attachment, a message box with the picture of a child is displayed. It also drops the following copies of itself in the Windows Systems directory MYBABYPIC.EXE, WINKERNEL32.EXE, WIN32DLL.EXE, CMD.EXE (this would overwrite the same named file on Windows NT) COMMAND.EXE. It modifies several registry entires to load on the next startup. So the creative.exe file is loaded automatically whenever the system is started.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\mybabypic = %WinSystem%\mybabypic.exe
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\WINKernel32 = %WinSystem%\WINKernel32.exe
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices = %WinSystem%\Win32DLL.exe

The worm also modifies the following registry keys.

HKCU\software\ Bugger\Default = HACK[2K]
HKCU\software\Bugger\ mailed = <number>

                     Then it opens the Microsoft Outlook Address book and sends email to all the email Ids stored. The message subject will be "My baby pic !!!", the message body will be "Its my animated baby picture !!" and the attachment name will be "mybabypicexe".

                     The payload of this worm is somewhat different. It switches on/off NumLock, CapLock ,ScrollLock keys and sends the message IM_BESIDES_YOU_ to the keyboard buffer. It also searches for files with extensions JS, JSE, CSS, WSH, SCT, HTA, PBL, CPP, PAS, C, H and overwrites with the worm body. For example XYZ.C will be renamed to XYZ.EXE. In case of JPG and JPEG files it overwrites and adds the extension .EXE. For example XYZ.jpg will be renamed to XYZ.jpg.exe. In case of MP2, MP3 & MU3 the worm creates a new file with .EXE extension.
