Virus!

Hi! i've downloaded all demos in the map "Groups" from amigascne.org and after a virus check on the file "EP-CrVidiMice10" by Endless Piracy the virusZ III v1.02 warned me about that file was infected by "centurious" virus (not sure of the Spelling of the virus name), so watch out.

this file was disifectable.

Thankyou for the warning. I trust that you have sent a message to the administrators at amigascne.org alerting them of this issue too.

I had a quick look, file is indeed infected with the "Smily Cancer" virus. Following text can be found after decrypting:

Yikes, it never crossed my mind that the Amiga was vulnerable to viruses :-(

Had one in the late 80s that did a lot of damage.

The Saddam virus was a nasty one on KS1.3, killed all your disks and files slowly. Wish the VHT could make a new up-to-date viruskiller for Amiga, one for 68K and one for PPC.

wish the programmer for bootx and virusz would release the sourcecode.
