Threat level : Medium

Virus details :

                     This virus is a Win32 PE file virus infects EXE, SCR, OCX files under Win9x and WinNT 4.0 platforms. The infected files will increase by 4099 bytes. What is notable about this virus is that it uses a new strategy to attack the Windows NT file security system and it runs as a service on Windows NT systems.

                     When the virus is first run, it drops a file called FLCSS.EXE into the SYSTEM folder. Then it directly infects all EXE, SCR, and OCX files in the folders Program Files and WINDOWS/WINNT, including any sub folders. It infects network shared drives too.

                     Under Windows NT it modifies the files NTOSKRNL.EXE and NTLDR if the current user is logged in with administrator rights. The modified files will activated after the next system restart, allows all users full administrator rights to the system. So any low level user can access the network with administrator rights.

                     The NTOSKRNL.EXE and NTLDR patches are executed by a routine picked up from the Bolzano virus. In fact, more than fifty percent of the virus code shows similarities to the Bolzano virus. It is very likely that the author of these two viruses is the same person.

                     When executed under DOS, the file FLCSS.EXE displays the message "~Fun Loving Criminal~" and then tries to reset the machine in order to load Windows.
