Type: Virus

Aliases: CIH.dam


F-Secure Anti-Virus might detect files that were inaccurately disinfected from CIH virus as 'CIH.dam'. This happens when disinfected files still have parts of CIH virus code in their headers and/or in-between file sections.


Though the infection will not spread from such files, it is recommended to delete them and to restore these files from a backup.
