4870 Overwriting

Summary

This is a primitive virus, which simply infects programs by overwriting (and destroying) them, but with an interesting twist.

The original virus is LZEXE packed, but this is not simply a method of hiding the first generation sample - the virus maintains the packing in all succeeding generations.
