The payload of W32/Kriz
is stolen from deadly W95/CIH
virus. The computer motherboards manufactured in
the last few years store their BIOS on a flash
ROM chip which are rewritable. W32/Kriz virus
directly attacks the code stored in the flash ROM
chip and makes the computer unbootable.
In certain motherboard
the BIOS chip are replaceable and solution is
possible by inserting a new chip. However in most
of the cases the BIOS chip is soldered to the
motherboard and there is no solution except to
replace the motherboard which could be expensive.
If the Flash BIOS is write-protected by jumper
set then the Kriz virus will delete all the data
stored on hard disk, which puts every computer at
