Beware - ZIP Viruses

May 28, 1996

Disguised ZIP Virus

A NEW Trojan Horse Virus has emerged on the Internet with the name PKZIP300.ZIP, so named as to give the
impression that this file is a new version of the PKZIP software used to "ZIP" (compress) files.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS FILE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!!
If you install or expand this file, the virus will wipe your hard disk clean and affect modems at 14.4 and higher. This is an
extremely destructive virus and there is not yet a way of cleaning this one up.
To be safe, do not download any file named PKZIP300 regardless of the extension.
