Technical Details

The virus corrupts some C, PAS, TXT, ME, DOC, BAK and ASM files by writing this poem to the beginning of them:

To Karen
 In the realm of a greek deity, I dreamt of you.
 A weird reverie, 
 Typewriters were like clouds, high in the sky, 
 The floor was made of paper, 
 Pencils stood for trees, 
 A light bulb, low on the horizon, made a perfect sunset.
 And it rained words ...
 Then you came, more beautiful than ever, 
 The only one real in my cyberspace.
 I felt like holding you im my arms, touching your hair, 
 Telling you how much I loved you, 
 How much I wanted to lose myself in your pretty brown eyes.
 I was almost in heaven.
 Suddenly it was pitch dark, 
 The greek god had turned off the PC. It said: 
 'Buddy you're just a damned cyberpunk 
 whose only friends are NPCs.' 
 I opened my eyes, it was dawning outside.
 You weren't there.
 I miss you. I really miss you.
 Zyx 
 From the slums of 
 Beverly Hills.
