Details

Virus.DOS.Adin.1224

This version is known to rewrite itself at the end of .EXE files, but does not do any sort of damage to any actual software. Therefore, it is harmless.[1]

Virus.DOS.Adin.1488

Adin.1488 is a harmless, memory resident and parasitic virus. It hooks onto INT 21h and writes itself at the end of .COM and .EXE files (except COMMAND.COM) and AIDSTEST.EXE.

If a file is infected, it can be renamed, closed, or accessed in weird ways.

It is a polymorphic virus. It infects files if they are either executed or renamed, however the files can be uninfected with debugging.
