Technical Details

When the virus infects a machine for the first time, it attempts to display a dialog box with these texts:

MoRTaLs aRe UnaBLe To HanDLe THe PoWeR ! ! !         GOD LIVES IN HELL...  

When 100 files have been opened after infection, the virus tries to delete the current command interpreter. This would prevent the machine from booting.

WM/Razer.A was reported to be in the wild in UK in early 1998.
