Technical Details

When an infected file is executed, the virus takes control, searches for Windows .EXE files in current directory and writes itself to the end of the file.

While spreading, the virus generates a copy of every infected file, with an EVE extension. For example, a directory with infected PROGRAM.EXE will also have PROGRAM.EVE.

The virus has a trigger routine that just beeps by PC speaker when virus takes control.

Virus contains these texts:

     MURKRY/IkX
        CEREBRUS
        The three head guardian, is in your computer, fear no more

This virus is written by the IKX group.
