Anticaro

Anticaro is resident, parasitic COM infector 1235 bytes long. From technical point of view it does not go beyond the average. It is interesting because it modifies antivirus AVP. AVP is changed in such a way that the first virus for the operation system Windows 95, called by the organization CARO as Boza, is identified as Bizatch. The virus originates in Spain and its author uses a nickname Mr. Sandman.
