    BootX Recoqfile Updater Fake Virus:

    Filelength: 2052

    This file appeared on an american BBS system and was
    spreaded as BootX updater. This is a trojan horse containing
    only a formatterroutine. I think the purpose of this programm
    is to damage the reputation of SHI@.

    The virus opens a window with the following text:

    'RAW:0/0/640/200/BootX-Updater by SHI Safe'
    'Hex International, Erik Loevendahl Soerensen'
    'dos.library'
    'This program updates the BootX-Recognition-'
    'Files, so BootX will know 87 new'
    'viruses. Sometimes the update-procedure fails'
    ' and your (hard)disk will be'
    'quick-formatted, but this is not a big bug'
    ', simply use an undelete-tool like'
    'quaterback-tools or disksalv. But mostly'
    ' updating works fine and the result'
    'is a new powerful BootX-Version! Even '
    'better, some people think of the'
    'quick-formatting-bug as a great feature, '
    'because by quick-formatting all'
    'viruses get destroyed, so everybody should'
    ' use BootX-Updater!!'
    'You can become a member of the famous SHI-'
    'organization, if you supply SHI'
    'with at least one virus per month. Self-'
    '-programming of viruses is very'
    'welcome, by this way we will learn about'
    ' future virus-techniques and we'
    'can control anything, both viruses and '
    'antiviruses. It is absolutely legal'
    'to program viruses, because SHI doesn't '
    'spread these viruses.'
    'Only programmers of antivirusprograms can'
    ' get these new viruses from SHI,'
    'Either by exchanging viruses or by paying'
    ' 5$ for each 1 KB Virus. I think'
    'this is a fair price for all the idealistic'
    ' work, SHI is doing. So if you are'
    ' able to supply us with at least one new'
    ' virus per month, join SHI'
