Comments : This nasty Anti-Elien trojan file is found in a file
called "elien.exe": 1016 bytes PowerPacked: 596 bytes.
This trojan is found at several bulletin boards
worldwide in an archive named anti_elien.lha without
ANY... doc ??? What do you think ??? strange isn't????
The Anti-Elien trojan is told to be a new kind of
anti-virus program against the Elien viruses to place
in your startup-sequence, but don't trust it....
In the Elien viruschecker trojan 0.1 you can read the
following ASCII txt:
"Elien_virus_checker v0.1 by zupa/T.L.X.
If you are starting the Elien viruschecker trojan file
the DosTrace 2.20 will give you the following system
messages in an endless loop:
" elien.exe: Writing 9 bytes to
.......and so on...............
If you are starting the Elien Trojan it to late to do
anything against it. The trojan creates a new file on
the "SYS:"-Device which is called "MeGaSUXX.TXT" and
writes in a loop (100000 times) the letters "aaaaaaaa"
in this file. If you`re now reseting your Amiga while
and writeing it can cause harderrors ! Be careful with
this devil ones!!
If your floppy disk or HD comes up with errors such as
checksum errors you can always use a repair program
as DiskSalv or like to repair it!
