Npox-963.A

Risk Level 1: Very Low

Updated:
February 13, 2007 11:47:32 AM
Also Known As:
Evil Genius
Type:
Virus

The Npox-963.A virus infects .COM files and .EXE files. When the infected files are run, the virus is loaded into memory.

When the virus is triggered, it formats the first 20 cylinders of the first 53 sectors of the first physical drive (80h). The virus is triggered when the computer's date is the 24th of any month, and the Delete key has been pressed, or the period key in the numeric keypad has been pressed.

Due to this virus’s stealth code, the DIR command does not show the change in size of the infected files as long as the virus is in memory.
