This parasitic resident virus infects COM files being executed. The virus counts programs being executed on an infected system. When the counter exceeds 256 the virus makes the hard disk unbootable by placing an infinite loop to the MBR code.
Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically disinfect the suspect file by either deleting it or renaming it.
