It will normally only attempt to do this once to each address.In addition to email, the worm generates random IP addresses and attempts to connect to these. If the machines with these IP addresses have shared C: drives that allow write access, the worm will attempt to copy itself (as linong.vbs) to the root, windows and startup folders of the remote machine. It will however not copy the executable file, so the emailing routine will fail.The script also creates a lot of directories (600) on the machine where it is run. These directories will be deleted when the worm goes inactive after 14 days.
