A virus that speaks Posted by Mikko @ 13:41 GMT

We've received some questions on the Amus (yeah, we know) email worm. Specifically, on the speech properties of this virus.

This worm will use the Windows Speech Engine (built-in to Windows XP) to speak the following message when run:

  How are you. I am back. My name is mister hamsi. I am seeing you. Haaaaaaaa.
  You must come to turkiye. I am cleaning your computer. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1. 0. Gule. Gule.

To find out what the message sounds like, listen to this audio file:
