Need some help regarding Amiga viruses.

I got my hands on some disks, some real stuff and a few pulled from the web.

Anyway I cannot be sure but I ended up infecting one of my winuae setups with something. VirusZ sorted that one out no problems!

But I have two dms images here that appear to be infected with H.N.Y.
This I assume is the Happy New Year virus?

VirusZ will not clean it... so how can I sort this out? Is there a more modern amiga virus killer out there?

back in the days i was using sometimes virustest - it was in german only, but gui was easily to understand. this could kill also fileviruses. it does not run in the background, you have to start the application and scan on your devices/floppies.
one more hint: using dms images with winuae make the program creating an adf version of that disk inside the winuae folder - after you disabled the "write-protect" flag in "floppy drives" settings.
so it will only change the created adf image, not the dms itself.
example: insert tool-disk.dms winuae will create tool-disk_save.adf

Download "Safe", and put it in your startup-sequence or user-startup. Quietly it will scan memory during boot and report to you if it finds any virus on your system.

Its not a complete anti-virus like VirusZ or VirusChecker, but it will search and kill any viruses in memory it finds.

Its good specially when you want to kill the viruses after playing a non-dos game and before it attack your session of Workbench and of the programs in the WBStartup folder.

Many viruses start infecting the programs it finds on the C directory and on the startup-sequence file. So if you attack them since the beginning on the boot, there is more chance for you to "win".

Code:
Run <>NIL: C:Safe

Thanks for the links, but why both? Which version of 'safe' is best?

cheers

Hi zen, I think you should choose the first. I put both because I only found the first link now; before this time I was using the second.

Thanx for the help guys! I tried killhappy but it finds nothing?

Anyway I have found an old thread about this problem, the virus is on Demomaniac v2.19 and that is where the infection came from: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=5294

I cannot clean the virus off that disk without taking the main exe out
Is there a valid link for this program without any viruses? the old link no longer works.

Much appreciated

Looks like v2.19 in the tosec still contains that virus... from that one disk I managed to infect my winuae install and probably my cf card setup... need to check that soon.
