The name of this virus is derived from the string "Adolf Hitler", which it contains. Adolf does not reserve any memory for itself, because it copies itself to low system memory (over the interrupt table).
Adolf occasionally prevents file deletion from happening. Otherwise it has no activation routine, it just spreads.
Adolf is not known to be in the wild.
Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically disinfect the suspect file by either deleting it or renaming it.
