I won't provide the links for you, because "Unwitting folks will click on the links."-by Orange Blossom. A new rogue anti-virus called VirusMelt has infected my gf's computer! Please do a study on it! If you want me to provide the link (you admins,) I will do. Its obvious. :thumbsup:

Batch virus "MeLT"

* Creates the hidden file "MELT_2A" in the temp directory
* Infects files in the current, parent and all path directories
* Infects one batch per run if less than ten infected files encountered
* After detecting ten infected files it displays a graphics screen effect
* Adds one line before the host batch and appends the rest
* Will not run if attached to AUTOEXEC.BAT (but infects it)

This batch virus is much more advanced. It takes control from the host immediately, runs the virus then runs the host batch. The host is run in such a way as to disable the virus until the host is completely finished to avoid slowing down batch files that call themselves in a loop. Simple appenders are very obvious when on such files, but this one causes no significant speed loss except at startup. This virus carries a harmless payload which is assembled with the debug command - it 'melts' the screen in a flash of color then returns it to normal before running the host.
