What is Klez?

The Klez virus is a worm that can spoof the From field in an e-mail (often set to an address found on the victim's machine). The worm attempts to unload several processes (anti-virus programs) from memory. The worm spreads by copying itself to network shares, if sufficient permissions exist.

The worm mails itself to e-mail addresses in the Windows Address Book, and to addresses extracted from files on the victim's machine. It arrives in an e-mail message whose subject and body is composed from a pool of strings carried within the virus (the virus can also add other strings obtained from the local machine).
