Summary

There are several variants of this virus. The original variant contained the following text:

Este programa fue hecho en Chile en 1992 por CPW.

It also had an activation routine: by random, it started to replace the characters typed from the keyboard so that the text was replaced with a sentence: "You are here CPW!". This effect stopped if user pressed Alt-anything.

Cpw is a retro-virus and will delete SCAN.EXE if it's attempted to run.
