Technical Details

Variant:SHHS-B (Secret Service)


This virus contains the text messages:

   Program too big to fit in memory      I'm sorry John McAfee (NOT!)      Secret Service Virus has arrived      Dedicated to all virus makers!      By: Agent #13/Nuke Member  

The messages are the only interesting part of the virus, which is rather badly written.
