This worm spreads as an email attachment, CARTOLINA.VBS. If your computer is infected by this worm, it will use the Microsoft Outlook address book to propagate itself. It cannot propagate itself if Outlook is not installed on your computer.
It tries to send itself out each time that the attachment is executed. It also changes the default pages of Internet Explorer.
Norton AntiVirus currently detects this as VBS.LoveLetter.Variant.
