I'm not sure, but I believe the virus is used to put computers on the spammer's botnet, so it can be used to send out more and more spam like the one below. I wish I knew how to be a hacker, I'd understand this stuff better LOL. Click Here to see more examples of UPS scams.

My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
