Summary



Breasts is a simple boot sector virus which infects the master boot sectors of hard drives and floppy boot sectors on floppies. It contains the following text, which seems to be never displayed:

Virginia / Shirley  ---  She has BREASTS, yes she has !!!

Breasts is an extremely buggy virus. For example, it allocates 16kB of memory, when it only needs 512 bytes. It also won't work properly in machines that do not have full 640kB of DOS memory.

Breasts was confirmed to be in the wild in the UK in May 1995.
