Gyorgy is a resident file virus infecting via loadexec.
The beginning of the virus code contains several jump commands,
which are patched on run-time. This is probably done in order
to confuse disassemblers.
During installation, Gyorgy checkes the byte at memory location
0000:0200h. If the value is 08h, virus concludes that it is already
Virus is installs itself at the top of the current free memory block in
a 1 kB slot using DOS memory allocation functions. Virus size is 747
bytes, and it installs itself at offset 100h in the allocated block.
Reserved DOS function 55h and the PSP memory pointers are also used in
the installation process. An INT 21h handler is set up and if the date
is from June to December of 1990, an INT 08h handler is also set up. DOS
calls are used to get/set the interrupt vectors. Virus goes resident by
int 27h (TSR). There is a flag set during infection which determines the
method by which exit is made into the host program.
The INT 21h handler intercepts the load/exec function to infect files.
If the given filename matches "*.E*" the file is treated as an EXE file,
otherwise it is treated as a COM file. COM files must be at least 1000h
bytes and smaller than 0FB2Fh bytes for infection. The infection
signature for COM files is 0E9h at offset 0 and 'K' at offset 3 of the
file. Infection signature for EXE files is 4F4Bh at offset 12h of the
file (checksum word in EXE header). Virus code is appended to the host
without any padding. A dummy critical error handler is installed during
infection to suppress error messages, and the file attribute is cleared
and restored afterwards. File date/time is also preserved.
The INT 08h handler (which is only installed June-December 1990) counts
to 65536 and then patches a word in the virus installation code (this
might be a bug, it would cause subsequent generations to crash during
installation) and toggles the video enable bit in the video controller
10 times with a software delay loop inbetween toggles.
At the end of the file is the text 'I LOVE GY"RGYI!'.
