This variant of Email-Worm:VBS/Loveletter is distributed as an infectious e-mail file attachment.
Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically disinfect the suspect file by either deleting it or renaming it.
VBS/LoveLetter.E spreads itself in a message which looks like this:
Subject: Mothers Day Order Confirmation Body: We have proceeded to charge your credit card for the amount of $326.92 for the mothers day diamond special. We have attached a detailed invoice to this email. Please print out the attachment and keep it in a safe place.Thanks Again and Have a Happy Mothers Day! firstname.lastname@example.org Attachment: mothersday.vbs
In addition, this variant deletes all files with the extensions ".ini" and ".bat" instead of ".jpg" and ".jpeg".
This variant does not attempt to download the "WIN-BUGSFIX.exe" from the Internet, though it modifies the Internet Explorer start page.
