A primitive 666 byte overwriting virus. When it activates, it wipes out the first 80 sectors on drive C:. The virus contains the following text:
DEICIDE! Glenn (666) says : BYE BYE HARDDISK!! Next time be carufull with illegal stuff. This experimental virus was written by Glenn Benton to see if I can make a virus while learning machinecode for 2,5 months. (C) 10-23-1990 by Glenn. I keep on going making virusses.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:
Check for the latest database updates
First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest updates, then try scanning the file again.
Submit a sample
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.
Note: If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
Exclude a file from further scanning
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.
Note: You need administrative rights to change the settings.
This virus is a bit more sophisticated that the first one, but contains equally childish messages.
