Bagle look through much more than just the address book:

7. Scans files on the local drives with the following extensions:
    * .adb
    * .asp
    * .cfg
    * .cgi
    * .dbx
    * .eml
    * .htm
    * .mdx
    * .mmf
    * .msg
    * .nch
    * .ods
    * .php
    * .pl
    * .sht
    * .tbb
    * .txt
    * .uin
    * .wab
    * .xml
and collects any email addresses it finds.


Virus writers are getting smart about playing with psychology:  users
tend to trust messages coming from the administration of their ISP,
particularly when it impacts their ability to send email.
