Description 4.0 Virus:
Filelength=7016 Spreaded at 05-07-1993.
This virus appeared first at 05.07.1993. on the german BBSs.It`s a
patched version of Description 3.0 by SBS!.This is a utilitie,which
is only usefull for AmiExpress boards.It was released as version 4.0
but in the file the original 3.0 messages appear.Then it claims to
load "SNAP" in the memory but it loads the delete command and clears
all files.The viruscoder must have Kickstart 2 but is for gods sake
not very well informed about the new functions....
You can see the command as an ASCII string in the code:
"delete :#? all".
Protect all important files on disc and the virus should not clear
them,because "delete" searches for the PROTECTIONbits"....
The virus is completely implented in the programm.No linker etc. was
used in my opinion.The virus works only if all programms needed by
the original DESCRIPTION 3.0 are avaible.I forgot to copy the file:
"S:Descriptions.TXT" and the virus did not work.
Special thanks must go to Atomix for the warning and Ronny for
keeping that virus for me.Thanx pals.Two days after the first
appearance of this virus,I got it from you....

At the end of the file you can see a text saying:Your HD is deleted.
Happy Birthday MCI/DCS Hahahahah....................
