Blava

Blava is a partially encrypted, resident, semi-stealth, parasitic COM infector. It is 787 bytes long. The virus infects files when they are executed, deleted, opened, renamed, and their attributes are changed. The virus is written rather tidy but it misses some of the controls and for that reason it may cause problems in the system. In the encrypted body there is the following text:
