This is a virus detection. Viruses are programs that self-replicate recursively, meaning that infected systems spread the virus to other systems, which then propagate the virus further. While many viruses contain a destructive payload, it's quite common for viruses to do nothing more than spread from one system to another.
Indication of Infection
On an infected system the virus emulates the EXTRASMAKRO functionality. Warning: It is important not to use this command, as you will execute the viral code. When using the DATEISPEICHERN command on March 31 it will delete the files C:\CONFIG.SYS and C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
. Then a MessageBox like
Hallihallo . . . Ich bin der Osterhase und sage Dir,
daß man an Ostern keinen Computer benutzen soll !!
is displayed. When the DATEI|DRUCKEN command is used there is a -in- chance that it will run a text replace routine, most are pretty funny if you know German! There are 8 possible text replacement procedures:
Blut replaced by Sperm, heiß replaced by kalt.
hell replaced by dunkel, Lampe replaced by Schlampe, weich replaced by hart.
links replaced by rechts, linke replaced by rechte.
während replaced by werend, nämlich replaced by nehmlich, Produkt replaced by Quotient.
geehrte replaced by geährte, Damen replaced by Samen.
freundliche Grüßen replaced by stinkingen Füßen, Bestellung replaced by Bestehlung, Nase replaced by Vagina.
der replaced by das, dem replaced by wem.
die replaced by sie, Ihnen replaced by Dir.
It will always replace Rauschnabel with Sauschnabel.
