Technical Details

Interestingly, DSME contains documentation both in English and Chinese. The author sends greetings to Dark Avenger and Nowhere Man and thanks for the inspiration he received from earlier polymorphic generators.

DSME is not as advanced as the generators produced before it. Dark Slayer admits this in his notes. The actual size of the generator is little over 2 kilobytes.

At the moment, there are few viruses known to use the DSME. One of them (DSME.Demovirus) can even be in the wild.
