Threat Description

VCS

Details

Category: Malware
Type: Virus
Platform: W32
Aliases: 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.
