Also Known As:
- VBS.Pando, VBS/Pando
VBS.Pando.A is an overwriting Visual Basic script (VBS) virus. It searches for .vbs files in the current folder (the location of the viral script), the parent folder of the current folder, and the \Windows folder; it then copies itself over these files. The script also creates the file Startup.lnk in the StartUp folder. This shortcut ensures that the viral script is executed every time that Windows starts.
If the current minute is :09 when the script is executed, a message will appear.
