Category: Malware

Type: Virus

Aliases: COMPIAC


This is a simple encrypted virus. When installing itself, it turns off all VSAFE's warning (usually viruses just unload VSAFE).

The virus stays resident in the interrupt vector table in low system memory. For this reason, there is no decrease in available system memory. The virus may crash the PC occasionally, especially with local area networks.

COMPIAC activates once every hour, rebooting the PC.

COMPIAC was found in the wild in Turkey in April 1996.
