Quicky is buggy resident infector of EXE files. It infects files whenever they are closed, so files get infected during execution, copying, reading etc. Files with read-only attribute get infected only if they are executed.
Quicky also includes a routine which is supposed to slowly corrupt information on the hard drive, but luckily this function does not work due to programming errors.
Quicky tries to delete database files belonging to different checksummers. Quicky contains no texts.
Quicky-virus has been found on some original disks belonging to utilities for Prosonic/Micropilot depth finder machines.
Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically disinfect the suspect file by either deleting it or renaming it.
