Virus.Multi.Sphinx.2751 or Sphinx is a multipartite virus that runs on MS-DOS.

BehaviorEdit

Sphinx is dangerous memory resident multipartite virus. On execution of infected file it hits MBR of hard drive. On loading from infected MBR it hooks INT 1Ch, then INT 13h, 21h and on termination of programs it searches for COM- and EXE-files and writes itself at their ends. It contains the bugs and in some cases corrupts the files instead of infection. Depending on system time it displays the messages:

Bonjour, je suis le SPHINX de la légende.  Tu veux jouer avec moi ?

Mauvaise réponse...

Bonne réponse...

Tant pis, tu jouras quand même...

Qui marche à quatres pattes le matin ,

à deux pattes le midi et sur trois pattes le soir ?

Donne la réponse en cinq lettres :

waits for input string "homme" and erases the disk sectors.
