Also Known As:
SWF.LFM.926
Type:
Virus

ACTS.LFM.926 is a virus that is capable of infecting Shockwave Flash (.swf) files. The virus uses the ActionScript scripting language (which is supported by Shockwave Flash) to create a DOS executable named V.COM in the same folder as the one from which the already infected Flash movie is being executed. This file is then executed by the virus, and it infects other Shockwave Flash files that are in the same folder.

NOTE: Definitions dated prior to January 9, 2002 may detect this virus as SWF.LFM.926.



If you are an Enterprise customer, you can add the .swf extension to the default file scanning list.
