The virus is a Non-Memory DOS virus that would infect .COM programs. When executed, the virus infects one .COM file in the current directory, infected programs would have a length of 716 bytes with the virus being located at the end of the file.

This virus would include secret messages too, like - “Beavis & Butthead were here. Huhuh. Dude. check out the secret messages. This virus sucks. Huh Hnn Hnn Ahuh”.

This virus would also occasionally corrupt programs and data files, including hidden system files, by adding 41 bytes to the file. There would be another message that would read - “ Beavis & Butthead were here. Huhuh”.

The virus was created by Primal FuryA.
