documentation, and back-issue archives is distributed periodically on
the list.  A FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) document and all of the
back-issues are available by anonymous FTP on CS.UCR.EDU.

	Let me preface this followup by saying that just because a system 
is "behaving oddly", it does not mean that there is a virus involved.

	Any file can be hidden with the ATTRIB command.  Heck, even 
ThunderBytre Anti-Virus creates hidden files with its integrity data in

	Hmm...it sounds like system started formatting, and stopped

that point, the disk should be unusable since it was not finished being

	Hmmm...this could be a possible companion infector; a virus that 
creates hidden *.COM files with the same name as *.EXE files, the COMs 
will be executed first, thus activating the virurs.

: Is this a virus? And if so, what can I do about it? Please be patient

It can be found on Simtel mirrors in the directory msdos/virus.  One

I ran a file "laugh.exe" that I downloaded as "piss.zip" from a binaries 
newsgroup and it printed on my screen "Your partition table is now 
infected with the smiling virus".  I ran the file from a floppy disk, so 
is that virus on the hard drive?  Is it real?  How do I get rid of it?  
Thanks for your time and attention.

Try the following:

On a bootable floppy copy fdisk.exe.  Boot from the floppy and 
enter the command "a:\fdisk /mbr"  this undocumented option 
(/mbr) will rebuild the master boot record and hopefully get 
that monkey off your back.  This has worked on other pcs but I 
have never tried this fix on a thinkpad.  Note: /mbr will not 
wipe your harddisk.

If this doesn't work try norton disk doctor from a bootable 
floppy. NDD will also rebuild a corrupted Master boot record.

Please Email me on the success of the above suggestions.

[Moderator's note:  Thank-you Steve for taking the effort to reply/help.
However, you have clearly -NOT- read the FAQ on the correct use of FDISK
/MBR and the original poster's problem is clearly in the "it is not safe

TWIMC;
I have been having problems with my printer port. It came on 
suddenly and has spread to my laptop. It appears as if the
virus uses an algorithim because there is a pattern in the
files printed. Have resolved most obvious things (conflict
bad card or cable). F-prot dec95 can't find anything. I think
I picked it up on USENET. Any help would be appreciated.

Could it be that the computer in question has some sort of third-party
undelete program installed on it that causes it to move "erased" files
and directories to a temporary directory before deleting them after
several days?

You may want to try "emptying the trashcan" directory to see if this
returns your missing hard disk space.

Subject: KOH in Mainstream Press (PC)
X-Digest: Volume 9 : Issue 7

HELP DESK ALERT!

Boardwatch Magazine, January 1996 issue, pg 78 published a very
favorable article about the KOH virus ("The Other Side of Computer
Viruses" by Wallace Wang). A few random short quotes:

"While computer viruses are real and can make the lives of sysops
and BBS callers miserable, there's another side of the computer
virus story that the news media conveniently ignores."

Wang goes on to then describe the KOH virus in glowing terms as
the savior of data from prying eyes the world over: "The KOH
virus insures that all of your data is protected, not just the files
you remember to encrypt." And, then goes on to describe how
harmless it is ("...buy the actual assembler source code and make
sure...") and where to get it.

The fun part comes when Wang says all sysops should use KOH to
protect their computers because the United Nations "...might break
down your door one day and haul your computer away...."

If you run a help desk and your users read this article and actually
install KOH, expect your calls to go way high. While KOH has
interesting properties, if someone forgets their password you have
real problems; and if the virus is allowed to move from machine to
machine, you can have worse problems. Despite what the article says,
KOH is dangerous, if for no other reason than people simply won't
read the documentation that comes with it. Your corporate data is
at risk if you let this beast loose. Take it from one who actually
ran it for several months just to see. It was not as benign and
"user friendly" as this article would have you believe.

Subject: B1 virus? (PC)
X-Digest: Volume 9 : Issue 7

From: "Charles H. Gilley" <gilley@america.net>
X-Digest: Volume 9 : Issue 5

> Can anyone fill me in on this virus? I allegedly had it,
> but cannot locate any information.

B1 is also known as NYB, and is a Boot Sector Virus, which starts from an
infected PC.  It's in memory all the time, and writes its code to Sector
#0, which all diskettes have. It makes no difference to the virus what is
on the disk, or even whether the diskette is bootable or not, and infects
diskettes in both A> or B> drives, if not they are not already infected, or
write-protected.
     NYB/B1 moves the diskette's original Boot record code to the last
sector of the area used by the Directory, and if the disk has files listed
in the overwritten sector, this will cause the loss of entries of files,
deleted files, and sub-directories in the root.
     The files could still be located in the file storage area of the disk,
and could be recovered using a utility program, but since they are no
longer listed in the Directory, they may be overwritten, as other files are
later stored on the diskette.
     Once the virus is on the diskette, if that diskette is later in the A>
drive of another PC at power-up, or when re-booted with Ctrl-Alt-Del, the
Boot sector is read, the virus takes control of memory, and infects the
hard disk, moving the partition/MBR data to (cylinder&head 0, sector 17),
and writing its code to (cylinder&head 0, sector 1).
     Ordinarily, data are not lost from the hard disk, because the sector
which the virus uses is not used by DOS. If that sector is used by
third-party software to store data, during formatting, or for password
access, or by drivers to access large partitions, obvious problems can
result, however.
     NYB/B1 is loaded into memory at every boot-up after. It's considered a
"stealth" virus, since besides giving no outward sign of its presence,
while in memory it can keep anti-virus and disk utility programs from
reading the infected Partition/MBR sector, where the virus code is.
     It does this by re-directing attempted reads of the infected MBR or
boot sector to the sector which has a copy of the original, un-infected
code.  If the virus is in memory, DOS cannot read infected high-density
diskettes on some PCs, because this is one virus which does not preserve
boot sector data properly.
    "General Failure" messages may occur, and disk utility programs can be
deceived, reporting (erroneously) that the Boot Record is "invalid," that
the Media Descriptor Byte is "incorrect," and that File Allocation Tables
are corrupt. Unfortunately, correcting these non-existent errors will cause
data loss.

It does not have to be a deliberate or even successful boot.
When you see the "Not a system disk" error message, you would
already be infected.  Lots of people who "don't boot from
floppies" occasionally leave data floppies in the
drive when they turn off their computers, and the computer
attempts to boot from them when next turned on.  Such people
often believe this doesn't count as a boot, somehow.

No.  Please do not spread such misinformation.  There are already
more than enough silly ideas about viruses in circulation.
