    This new threat of Lovgate can spread rapidly in unprotected corporate network shares

    This variant of Lovgate is a mass-mailing worm that also propagates through open network shares. It allows an attacker to access your computer. The email will have a variable subject and a file attachment with a .bat, .cmd, .exe, .pif, or .scr file extension.
