Technical Details

An encrypted virus that contains the following text message:

I'm a non-destructive virus developed to study the worldwide diffusion rate. 
I was released in September 1990 by a software group resident near
Como lake (north Italy).   
Don't worry about your data on disk. 
My activity is limited only to auto-transferring into other program files. 
Perhaps you've got many files infected. 
It's your task to find and delete them
