W32/Qizy-A uses VBS/Qizy-A to mail itself to everyone in the Outlook address book.

W32/Qizy-A attempts to prepend itself to any EXE files in the Windows folder, the My Documents folder and the MIRC folder. Any RTX (ring-tone) files in the My Documents folder are replaced with Jingle Bells. Another program, C:\startup.exe, is dropped and the following registry entry is added so that the new program is run on restart:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

The dropped program informs the user of the infection and claims they may be able to disinfect it once they answer ten questions correctly:
