Threat Description

4870 Overwriting

Details

Aliases: 4870 Overwriting
Category: Malware
Type: Virus
Platform: W32

Summary



This is a primitive virus, which simply infects programs by overwriting (and destroying) them, but with an interesting twist.

The original virus is LZEXE packed, but this is not simply a method of hiding the first generation sample - the virus maintains the packing in all succeeding generations.
