Lovgate.F is a worm that spreads across local networks and via e-mail.
Lovgate.F creates a large number of copies of itself in the shared network drives that it manages to access. It also sends out a large number of e-mail messages to the contacts it finds in the Inbox and to the e-mail addresses it finds in a series of directories.
Lovgate.F is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate that it has infected a computer.
