January 31, 2002
W32.MyLife.C@mm is a mass-mailing worm that propagates through the Microsoft Outlook address book and the MSN Messenger contact list. The worm sends an e-mail with the subject 'The List' and an attachment named List.TXT.scr. If the worm is on your system for more than 50 minutes, it will delete all files located on your C drive, as well as attempt to format the D, E, F, G, H, and I drives if they exist. Norton AntiVirus users should run LiveUpdate to make sure their virus definition files are up to date. Recent virus definition files will prevent infection.
