Technical Details


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!     mothersday@subdimension.com     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.
