 A bug in the code is believed to be keeping it from spreading by sending
itself to people listed in e-mail address books, according to Gullotto. It is
ranked a "medium" risk, he added.

The worm, which was seen in the United Kingdom, Poland, Finland, India and the
United States, seems to have leveled off, Gullotto said.

MessageLabs, a UK-based e-mail outsourcing provider, said it had seen 1,200
copies of the worm and that the first copy it received was from Malaysia.
