Summary



There is no virus by this name. However, we sometimes get queries about COPYHARD.COM, since some ancient versions of WordPerfect (and possibly some other software) included a copy-protection scheme which used a file named like this. Many heuristics antivirus programs give false alarms on this file; ignore them.
