WinVir

Summary

This is the first virus that is able to infect Microsoft Windows files of the New Executable format. It does not infect normal DOS files at all.

It contains the strings "Virus_for_Windows v1.4" and "MK92".

Virus has very limited functionality as it only spreads from file to file, disinfecting itself from a program when it is infecting another.

The only visible thing the virus causes is that infected files will not start with the first try but the second.

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.
