Huge thanks to all of you who continue to watch, rate, comment and enjoy my videos. Also, big thanks to FlightCPUBoy for finding this virus that activates in a similar manner to one of my favorite virus/worm hybrids of all time, Magistr.
Shoerec acts in different ways depending on what day it is first executed. If it's the 1st, 2nd or 3rd, it not only infects files but it also randomly drops trojans that wipe the drive of critical files when they are executed after seven months. This payload in and of itself would be good enough for a video.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!
Shoerec also has an additional payload that can activate anytime after four months of first running the virus, when it makes icons on the desktop run away from the mouse cursor, causing a mixture of annoyance and hilarity.
Thanks again for continuing to watch my videos guys. I honestly don't know why you guys like them that much, but I appreciate it all the same. You all rock, hope you enjoy what's to come.
