Technical Details


Variant:Pesan.B

This is a later variant with destructive activation routine. The virus does not display any messages, but it attempts to delete the following files:

c:\dos\chkdsk.exe
        c:\dos\format.com
        c:\dos\defrag.exe
        c:\dos\scandisk.exe
        c:\msdos\chkdsk.exe
        c:\msdos\format.com
        c:\msdos\defrag.exe
        c:\msdos\scandisk.exe

After this Pesan.B creates a BAT file with the same name. When this batch file is executed, it will delete all files from drive C: with the deltree command.

The activation routine failes if there is no c:\dos or c:\msdos directory (most Windows 95 and NT systems do not have such directories).
