Classification

Category: Malware

Type: Virus

Aliases: Flip, Omicron

Summary


When the virus activates on a computer with an EGA or VGA display adapter, it will "flip" the screen horizontally and switch to a special character set, which reverses each character. This effect only happens on the second day of each month, between 16:00 and 16:59. The Tequila virus is clearly derived from Flip, and is probably from the same author.

Flip contains this encrypted text: "OMICRON by PsychoBlast".
