Xvs.library v33.47 released

Hi all.

Georg Wittmann has released a new version of the Xvs.library.
Remember that VirusZ III, VirusExecutor, VirusChecker and VirusSlayer all uses this library to find virus and trojans. So remember to always have the newest update in your LIBS: drawer.

Release info:
Xvs.library : v33.47
Archive size: 103.300 bytes
Date : 30 may 2022


News xvs.library 33.47 (size: 67.024 bytes)
- Added 'Jackal 2021' bootvirus and its installer (as filevirus). Thanks to Crashdisk for sending the infected archive.
- Added at least some code to remove an active 'LOBO Hardcore' link-virus from memory. File recognition and repair code is still to come.

You can find the archive here:
https://vht-dk.dk/amiga/xvs/xvs.htm

Or on AmiNet.

Hello,
does the program "AntiVirus" in the "Utilities" folder of AmigaOS 3.2.1 use the xvs.library too?

Cheers

Xvs.library v33.47 released

Many thanks, already installed!

Sad to notice a new virus in 2021 (!!) though.

I would recomend that you use VirusZ III v1,04b, the only antivirus program that has been updated recently.
You can download VirusZ at this link: https://www.vht-dk.dk/amiga/vz/vz.htm

Does this mean that some d...heads are still writing viruses for the Amiga? Seeing as it's a rather small community, I would guess they also frequent EAB. That's a little disturbing. I can't wrap my head around why anyone would spend time writing malicious code for such an old system. And if - god forbid - they succeeded in someone losing valuable data because of the virus, that would only accomplish to kill the platform off even faster.

Shouldn't it be possible to track this/these coders down by looking into where the infected file was first seen?

Hi, you could try and run the test program that Georg Wittmann made, to check for errors under AROS, MorphOS & AmigaOS3+, AmigaOS4+, you can download it from the Virus Help Website, or use this link:
https://vht-dk.dk/amiga/vz/MAA4SIC

Just send the result of the test to Georg Wittman (The programmer of xvs.library and VirusZ), use this e-mail adress: virusz_xvs@gmx.de and write what your problem is.

Regards
Jan

Hi
Yes, there are still som stupid people out there, that program viruses for the Amiga system.

It is is pretty hard to track the virus programmers. We have names and adresses for people that has made an Amiga viruses and trojans, but the data law in every country is so different, and it also hard to prove that each person made the virus or trojan. But we have written to each person a 'snail-mail', and told them that we have an eye on them.

Regards
Jan - Virus Help Team
