Summary



This Russian virus does not seem to work on any of the machines I use for testing viruses - infected programs simply hang the machine. The virus seems to be able to infect EXE and COM files, but has not been fully analyzed yet. It is reported to interfere with operations on dBASE .DBF files, resulting in corruption of data.
