Technical Details



This variant spreads in a message with the following content:

Subject:    fwd: Joke
    Attachment: Joke.vbs
	
	

VBS/LoveLetter.BE@mm is quite similar with the original VBS/LoveLetter.A. This variant saves itself to the Windows System directory as "Jokes.vbs" and "Jokes.htm".

Also this variant uses a different set of extensions, so the files with the following extensions are deleted: ".js", ".zip", ".css", ".doc", ".xls" and ".htm"; and the files with following extensions are hidden: ".mp3" and ".mid". The worm creates a new file using the original file name and a ".vbs" extension for each file that it deletes or hides.

This variant does not spread via mIRC.
