VBS.Trojan.Lovcx is a Visual Basic Script (VBS) Trojan that is similar to the VBS.Loveletter.CV@mm worm.

The VBS.Trojan.Lovcx Trojan:
  1. Copies itself to the \Windows\System folder as Msword.vbs and Thwin.vbs,
  2. Deletes up to five files that have certain file extensions,
  3. Saves a list of the deleted files as \Windows\System\ListWin.txt, and
  4. May also attempt to copy itself to the A drive.

Unlike VBS.Loveletter.CV@mm, VBS.Trojan.Lovcx does not use email to spread itself.
