Variant:Crackpot-208, New BadGuy, BillMe
Other variants, not particularly interesting.
Variant:Sabrina, Naziskin, Naziskin 2
Non-working attempts to write a virus, based on other members of this family.
All the variants can only be removed by deleting infected programs, but as they are very primitive they are not expected to become a problem.
