Description

This is a non memory-resident parasitic virus. It searches for EXE files in all directories of the current disk, then writes itself to the end of the file. It contains the string “motherfucker,” and uses this string to separate the infected and uninfected files.

Under some conditions, the programs infected by the virus halt the system.
