BootX Recoqfile Updater Fake Virus: ----------------------------------- Filelength: 2052 This file appeared on an american BBS system and was spreaded as BootX updater. This is a trojan horse containing only a formatterroutine. I think the purpose of this programm is to damage the reputation of SHI@. The virus opens a window with the following text: 'RAW:0/0/640/200/BootX-Updater by SHI Safe'
'Hex International, Erik Loevendahl Soerensen' 'dos.library' 'This program updates the BootX-Recognition-' 'Files, so BootX will know 87 new' 'viruses. Sometimes the update-procedure fails' ' and your (hard)disk will be' 'quick-formatted, but this is not a big bug' ', simply use an undelete-tool like' 'quaterback-tools or disksalv. But mostly' ' updating works fine and the result' 'is a new powerful BootX-Version! Even ' 'better, some people think of the' 'quick-formatting-bug as a great feature, ' 'because by quick-formatting all' 'viruses get destroyed, so everybody should' ' use BootX-Updater!!' 'You can become a member of the famous SHI-' 'organization, if you supply SHI' 'with at least one virus per month. Self-' '-programming of viruses is very' 'welcome, by this way we will learn about' ' future virus-techniques and we' 'can control anything, both viruses and ' 'antiviruses. It is absolutely legal' 'to program viruses, because SHI doesn't ' 'spread these viruses.' 'Only programmers of antivirusprograms can' ' get these new viruses from SHI,' 'Either by exchanging viruses or by paying' ' 5$ for each 1 KB Virus. I think' 'this is a fair price for all the idealistic' ' work, SHI is doing. So if you are' ' able to supply us with at least one new' ' virus per month, join SHI' ' SHI Safe Hex ' 'International' 'Erik Loevendahl Soerensen (also known as ' 'the master of the virus-universe',27,')' ' Snaphanevej 10, 4720 Praestoe' ' Denmark - Europe' 'sys:system/format ......
