Smily Cancer II Virus
- The Smily Cancer II Filevirus length: 4676 2x coded
after 1x decoding with eori.b #$90,d1
CENTURIONS STRIKES BACK: THE SMILY CANCER II
when starting the program the loadWB command is simulated and
the virus copies itself to memory. Spreading is done like
Smily 1, that is: No spreading as Smily II! See Smily I
Note 03.09.92: VT now removes several SmileyLinks in one
operation. If not, please get in touch.
Note 16.04.93: a smily clone is found.
Length: extends a file with 3916 bytes
Almost all infected files are not executable. This
leads me to think that the addbuffers command was manipulated by
VT shortens the files to their original length, and then the
startup-sequence can be executed again.
Difference from the original: the jump-command to the decoding
routine is changed.
How to cope: see above.
Note 12.06.93: More and more often there comes defective
Smiley-files. VT should recognize a defect hunk-structure when
trying to repair, and then offer to delete. Please don't forget
to test the s-seq and - if needed - re-copy the original file.
