Many current viruses reside on infected PCs in a stealth-like manner and don't delete user data files. While the new Gormlez virus is easy to identify and block, it can cause significant loss of information on infected PCs.

VBS.Gormlez - New destructive virus

VBS.Gormlez@mm is a mass-mailing worm that sends a copy of itself to all email addresses in the Windows Address Book and attempts to spread through file-sharing networks. The worm deletes files with a .dll, .vbs, .exe, or .wsh extension
