Technical Description:

This is one of the versions of Win95.CIH which was widely spread few years ago and even today some computers are infected.

This virus works only under Windows 95/98/ME. The main difference from the original version is the payload date: 2 August (instead of 26 April). At that date the virus destroys the Flash BIOS and an important part of the hard disk, leading to a very hard (or even impossible) data recovery.
