When ran, Switch randomly searches the directories on the current hard drive and attempts to infect one file. It does not infect COMMAND.COM, and restores the original attributes of infected files.
Allow F-Secure Anti-Virus to disinfect the relevant files.
For more general information on disinfection, please see Removal Instructions.
Switch deletes MSAV and TBAV checksum files in the directories it infects. It has three encryption methods:
- Standard rotate (Uses random key for seven possible 'mutations') - Standard XOR (Uses random key, for 256 possible 'mutations') - Flipping of code stored in host in reverse order
