Description

Evidence of infection with the Lovgate email worm and trojan has been found on the system. This worm spreads by automatically mailing copies of itself to other users and by copying itself to other machines over the network.

The worm installs a backdoor trojan which opens TCP port 10168 on the machine. This backdoor allows anyone to connect and take full control over the computer.
