Threat Description

Print Screen Boot

Details

Aliases: Print Screen Boot
Category: Malware
Type: Virus
Platform: W32

Summary


This is a very small virus that stores the original boot sector in the last sector of the root directory, just like the Stoned and Korea viruses. It relocates the original INT 13 to INT 6D, which will cause problems with many VGA cards. As the name indicates, the virus will occasionally perform a PrintScreen operation.
