Virus Name  : VBS/NewLove

Alias             : I-Worm/NewLove

Virus type    : VB Script worm

Threat level : Low

Virus details :

                     VBS/NewLove is a modified variant of VBS/Love Letter worm uses Microsoft outlook to spread. It contains a very dangerous payload and it will overwrite all files (including windows system files) with virus code in a fly. The damaged files cannot be recovered.

                     The email message subject will be Fw:< File Name.EXT> ( Example: Abc.TXT ) and the attachment will be < File Name.EXT.VBS > ( Example: Abc.TXT.VBS ). The VBS extension will not appear if Windows Scripting Host is installed. When opening the e-mail attachment, the worm opens Microsoft Outlook Address book and sends email to all the email ids stored. The attached file name is taken from the recently opened list.

                     Then the worm searches for all local, remote drives and overwrites all files with the script and adds the extension .VBS. For example "notepad.exe" will be overwritten as "notepad.exe.vbs". The worm also adds comments in virus code to defy anti-virus scanners. The noticeable property of the worm is that the attachment name and size will vary from machine to machine.
