Technical Details


Sometimes the virus will fail and just damage EXE files instead of infecting them. Names of all infected files will be written to C:\LOG.LOG.

The virus contains these texts strings which are never shown:

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MrKlunky
 MRKLUNKY_DDB 		 		

Otherwise the virus just spreads.
