VCS

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.

Removal

Automatic action

Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
