We found the following on an infected server also:

For each share on the server, it generates a .eml file and puts it in the
root of the share.  It then creates a index.asp, index.htm, default.asp and
default.htm on the root of the share which points to and downloads the .eml
file from the root of the share.  Neat thing is, anyone with Active Desktop
(View my Desktop as a Web Page) enabled is going to get it, presumably.
Simply by browsing the shared directory.  It looks like it morphs the .eml
file names to.  Not all are "readme.eml", althought they all are ~ 79K in

Happy disinfecting.  My customer on the end of a 56K FR link was fsck'd this
afternoon.  Welcome to IT during the first war fo the 21st century ...
