High stakes viral math test
By Murray Bourne, 22 Mar 2006
If you are math-phobic, this would be a scary computer virus. The article is from f-secure.com: Infected CD-ROM Disks In Circulation.
Two separate cases, in which a file originating from a CD-ROM disk had caused a virus infection, were discovered in October and November. In both cases, the involved disks were globally distributed shareware collections.
The PS-MPC.Math-test virus was found from the CD-ROM disk "Software Vault, Collection 2". [...] The virus stays resident in memory and infects practically all executed COM and EXE programs. It activates every day between 9 and 10 a.m., displays some simple summing problems and demands that the user solve them. If the user doesn't get the answer right, the virus won't execute the requested program.
I hate viruses...
