Classification

Category: Malware

Type: Virus

Summary


This virus is created by an .EXE file, which will ask the user for the name of a text file which will be included in the created virus code. It will also ask after how many generations this text is to be displayed. At that time the virus will also delete AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS.

The virus attempts to avoid detection by not becoming active if it detects Flushot+ in memory.
