Summary


This Russian virus appears to be related to the Voronezh virus - perhaps having the same author. It is an encrypted COM and EXE infector, which has not been fully analyzed yet, but when it activates it will trash the hard disk so completely the computer cannot even be rebooted from a floppy disk without unplugging the hard disk first.
