I am currently out so I can't check if it is true, but according to the VB magazine:

"Despite coming close to a VB 100% award, Alwil's product fell short by one file - the .HTM sample of W32/Lovelorn was missed from the ItW test set."

Pavel

So this is very interesant because according virus database update history

VPS 0312-4, 06.01.2004
Win32:Lovelorn-B [Wrm]

i hope it's not another "incorrect" setting fail :(

also i wonder where they got 4.1.399 :)

can't wait for more info ...
