Virus.DOS.Leprosy.1580, commonly called Hellraiser, is a dangerous encrypted overwriting virus on DOS.


When the virus is run, it infects a random executable by overwriting the first 1,580 bytes in the file.

Files infected by the virus will no longer function properly but spreading the virus.


The virus activates on Friday 25th.

When an infected program is run, the virus displays a short message with an ASCII art and hangs the system.
