Threat Description

Month 4-6

Details

Aliases: Month 4-6, Agiplan
Category: Malware
Type: Virus
Platform: W32

Summary



This virus was first reported in the German AGIPLAN company, but then it disappeared for nearly two years, until a sample appeared in South Africa. This re-appearance is rather mysterious, as this sample was not a "natural" infection by the virus.

Structurally the virus is similar to the Zero Bug virus, as both add 1536 bytes to the beginning of the programs they infect. The virus will not have any serious effects until it has been active on an infected machine for several months, but then it will start corrupting write operations.
