    This memory-resident variant of the WORM_KLEZ.A is a mass-mailing worm that uses its own SMTP engine to propagate via email. Upon execution, it drops a WINK*.EXE file in the Windows System Folder that allows it to execute at every Windows startup:


    WORM_KLEZ.G is detected by pattern file #265.
