Technical Details

Once Virus:W32/Delf.BO has been executed, it will display a non-malicious file. Typically, office documents, text files, or log files. The clean file is dropped into the following folder:

  • %temp%\PrgStart

Virus:W32/Delf.BO drops the following malicious file component in the Windows directory:
