Full Name:
Type: Worm
Also Known As: Lovebug, I-Worm.LoveLetter, ILOVEYOU
Danger Level: 6
Category Description: Virus-like program that spreads automatically to other computers by sending itself out by email or by any other means. A program that propagates itself by attacking other machines and copying itself to the affected machine.

Worms have self-replicating code that travels from machine to machine by various means. A worms first objective is merely propagation. Worms can be destructive depending on what payload they have been given. Worms may replace files, but do not insert themselves into files.
Comment: The worm uses the Outlook e-mail application to spread. LoveLetter is also an overwriting VBS virus and it spreads using a mIRC client as well.

When it is executed, it first copies itself to the Windows System directory as:

- MSKernel32.vbs

and to the Windows directory as:

- Win32DLL.vbs
