Virus.DOS.Crucifixion is a memory resident parasitic virus on DOS.

There are 3 variants:

  • Virus.DOS.Crucifixion.2888
  • Virus.DOS.Crucifixion.2914
  • Virus.DOS.Crucifixion.2916


When the virus is loaded into memory, it hooks INT 9 and 21h to infect any DOS executable file by writing itself to the end of these files that are opened by INT 21h function ExtendedOpen (AH=6Ch).


On pressing Alt-Ctrl-Del, depending on the system date it draws the picture, plays the tune and displays the messages:

If you're the Messiah and you know it,
Clap your hands!
Then your face will surely show it,
(rucifixion Virus 1.0

(c) 1994, by Jesus of The Trinity
