  • Powerful virus found affecting Windows NT

    Network Associates Inc. (NAI) in late December warned its customers and users of an extremely powerful and dangerous virus that affects Windows NT systems, which was detected in MCI WorldCom's computers. Known as Remote Explorer, the virus contains 120K bytes of code written in C and is larger than most viruses. It compresses executable files and encrypts .doc and .xlf files, rendering them unusable.
