Brief Description 

    

Lubus.C is a worm that reaches computers via e-mail. The message containing the worm is very easy to identify, as its subject is always TH and the attachment is THWIN.VBS.

Whenever it is run, Lubus.C deletes five random files with the following extensions: XLS, DOC, WAV, DWG, MP3, BAK, WAV, BMP, HTM, HLP, CHM, JPG, GIF, SCR, TTF, MID, CDR, MDB, DBF and ICO.

Lubus.C also drops and runs another worm called Redlof.A.
