Technical Details

An encrypted virus that contains the following text message:

I'm a non-destructive virus developed to study the worldwide diffusion rate.
I was released in September 1990 by a software group resident near Como lake (north Italy).

Don't worry about your data on disk.
My activity is limited only to auto-transferring into other program files.
Perhaps you've got many files infected.
It's your task to find and delete them
