Lentin.L is a worm that reaches computers in a file attached to an e-mail message with variable characteristics.
The effects of Lentin.L are considered dangerous because:
- It spreads rapidly via e-mail.
- It terminates several processes in affected computers, which causes, among others, antivirus programs and firewalls to stop.
There is no clear indication that Lentin.L has reached your computer.
It is also difficult to identify the messages carrying Lentin.L, as their characteristics vary each time. The name of the attached file that carries out the infection is selected at random from a list and has an SRC, EXE or COM extension.
