Technical Details

VBS.GaScript is an Internet worm and script virus made with the help of the the virus script construction program Gate Script. The virus and worm code were both written in Visual Basic Script (VBS).

The Gate Script program facilitates the building of viruses and worms that spread via email.

Below is a selection of destructive actions Gate Script administers for generating worms:

  • copies worms to the system catalog
  • encrypts code
  • infects files on local disks (files with vbs and htm extensions).
  • displays messages on the monitor screen

    There are three versions of the Gate Script constructor program. Most viruses generated with it contain mistakes and are therefore inoperative.
