Category: Malware

Type: Virus

Aliases: WinVir


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.
