Virus.DOS.Deliver.BlueShark.1771 is a dangerous memory resident parasitic encrypted virus on DOS.

BehaviorEdit

The virus infects all the EXE executable files in current directory when run, but not every file having this extension will be infected as well. After that it stays memory resident.

The virus behaves stealthy so that there is no observable size change on infected files, however due to its variable infection size, few bytes of change can still be observed on some files.

Memory usageEdit

The exact memory usage is 1,888 bytes.

PayloadEdit

When the machine starts up or reboots on November 1st, the virus activates by overwriting the hard drive sectors with the string:

! MAYBE ONE DAY WE BE UNITED !

And then it plays the tune (Star Spangled Banner), displays the US national flag and the message:

!!!    MY NAME IS DISKDELIVER  *  THIS IS ONLY BEGIN  *  I BE BACK   !!!

After restarting, the virus wipes the hard drive.

Other detailsEdit

The virus contains the encrypted internal text string:

""" CREATED BY BLUE SHARK - FINISHED 7.VIII.1994 15:30 - CIESZYN POLAND """
