Win95/Kenston (also known as Win95/Haha) is was found in February
1999. It infects Win95/Win98 program files. The virus is encrypted
with a simple XOR function.
When an infected file is executed, the virus locates clean PE EXE
files and infects them. It does not do anything else.
The virus contains these texts which are never displayed:
Boles and Manning are arrogant facists. They have no computer
sk1llz and KENSTON HIGH SCHOOL's computers are 0wn3d. I AM
BACK KOONS YOU MOTHERFUCKER dowN wiTh KenSTON..... yOU tRIED
tO rID yOUrSELf oF mE BefoREbUT fAILED
Win95/Kenston has been found in the wild in several parts of Europe.
It has probably been written by a studen in the Kenston High School,
in Ohio, USA. The people mentioned in the above text are working
for this school and have nothing to do with the virus.
