Brief Description 

    

Lentin.N is a worm that reaches the computer in a file attached to an e-mail message with very variable characteristics.

Lentin.N is considered a dangerous virus as:

  • It spreads rapidly via e-mail.
  • It ends many processes in the affected computers, thereby causing antivirus and firewalls programs, among others, to stop.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Lentin.N is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate that it has infected a computer.

It is also difficult to identify the messages carrying Lentin.N, 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.
