Category: Malware
Type: Virus
Platform: W32


This is a Windows virus which infects DOS COM and EXE files and Windows EXE files. It uses a VxD driver to stay resident in memory.

Memorial activates on 10th of April. At this time it displays a dialog box with text:

Clinton Haines Memorial Virus by Quantum/VLAD and Qark/VLAD  Clinton Haines, also known as Harry McBungus, Terminator Z and Talon   died of a drug overdose on his 21st birthday, April the 10th, 1997.   During his time as a virus writer he wrote the No Frills family,   X-Fungus, Daemon and 1984 viruses.  He was a good friend to VLAD and   so we write this virus in his honour.  We hope it's good enough to   do him justice.  VLAD Remembers. Rest in Peace  

Otherwise the virus just spreads.
