Did you know that someone has made a money making scam of this "fake virus"? They are sending people to a local pharmacy or Wall Mart to pay cash for a "money pack", thereby getting $200 or $300 each! Of course, once the person has paid the cash and gotten a special "code", it doesn't fix the problem! I know of 2 people in my town who got scammed with this! I think it is criminal and should be prosecuted.

maybe I'm not understanding the steps... I made a new text document(thanks to notepad) then copied and pasted the code and then saved it as VIRUS.BAT. So it's saved, I closed it and double clicked on it to run and nothing, it just opened the notepad reader, not the cmd prompt window, what step may I be missing or not understanding?
click start and type or look for "run" in run type "CMD" then copy this code and after look on your desktop for a a file called fakevirus.bat then run fakevirus,bat



cd %homedrive%\Users\%username%\Desktop
del fakevirus.bat /q

echo @echo off >>fakevirus.bat
echo title VIRUS >>fakevirus.bat
echo color 06 >>fakevirus.bat

echo echo YOU HAVE A VIRUS ON YOUR COMPUTER >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo CONTACTING ANTI-VIRUS.... >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo DO YOU WANT TO DELETE VIRUS? >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat

When you saved it, did you Choose ALL Files, and not Text Documents (*.txt)?
eg.

File Name:                               VIRUS.bat
Save as type:                           All Files

I know its not very clear, but maybe you can understand my gibberish

@ncooper it is something to do with your system settings there is videos on youtubes just google how to create a batch file and things should come up, good luck Sam

where do you find the bat file?
The quickest way is to save the .bat file to your desktop.
or copy this code into the cmd prompt box and it will make the file you need on your desktop,after it has made the file run "fakevirus.bat"


cd %homedrive%\Users\%username%\Desktop
del fakevirus.bat /q

echo @echo off >>fakevirus.bat
echo title VIRUS >>fakevirus.bat
echo color 06 >>fakevirus.bat

echo echo YOU HAVE A VIRUS ON YOUR COMPUTER >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo CONTACTING ANTI-VIRUS.... >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo DO YOU WANT TO DELETE VIRUS? >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACTIVATING VIRUS..... >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo VIRUS ACTIVATED!!!!>>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo :1 >>fakevirus.bat
echo dir/s >>fakevirus.bat
echo goto 1 >>fakevirus.bat

mfrancis here is a simple way of doing it 1.Create a new TEXT document 2.Name it whatever you want then .BAT at the end that is how you get a .bat file :)
or open cmd prompt and type or copy the following:

cd %homedrive%\Users\%username%\Desktop
del fakevirus.bat /q

echo @echo off >>fakevirus.bat
echo title VIRUS >>fakevirus.bat
echo color 06 >>fakevirus.bat

echo YOU HAVE A VIRUS ON YOUR COMPUTER >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo CONTACTING ANTI-VIRUS.... >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo DO YOU WANT TO DELETE VIRUS? >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACTIVATING VIRUS..... >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo VIRUS ACTIVATED!!!!>>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo :1 >>fakevirus.bat
echo dir/s >>fakevirus.bat
goto 1>>fakevirus.bat

(copy and paste it in notepad save as .bat and run)

but want it to actually restart your computer, not shut it down. at the moment it does nothing but close the command window that pops up when you run it. it would be much appreciated if some help could be given on this. it is mainly the end part im having troubles with.

Try this

@echo off
:place1
color 02
echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random%
goto place1
so what is it supposed to do anyways?

If you do this, end it with .BAT , remember the capitals.

Sorry, but his isn't very realistic, I don't think many people would fall for it. Your telling the user not to contact antivirus, and viruses run silently. Plus
If something opened up from a file I would just check in task manager for any batch files. (Shit I'm really a geek) Maybe people would believe it.

This is a really destructive virus that:
> disables mouse & keyboard
> disables task manager
> starts at startup
> alters file associations

Open and do this at your own risk!!!

I thought this was fake so I tested it...

I payed the consequences...
XOIIO knexguy923 years ago
LOL what happened?

It looks near the end that is disables the mouse and keyboard, it seems like it could be modified into a prank that would disable the mouse randomly, something like

@echo off
:LOOP
ping localhost -n =%random%%100+1
rundll32.exe mouse, disable
ping localhost -n 25 >nul
rundll32.exe mouse, enable
GOTO LOOP

and run with a ghost vbs script. What do you think?
XOIIO XOIIO3 years ago
Just tried in on virtual XP, cant quite get the random number to work... also says that it cant load the mouse?

any help with isolating the mouse/ keyboard disabling?
knexguy92 XOIIO3 years ago
I WOULD HELP YOU BUT 1 THING
I don't know what virtual xp is
also i'm not such a good coder, so... yeah
I LIKE MOULDY BABY FOOD LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
ONE TIP THOUGH
if it can't load the mouse.....


plug the mouse in!!!!!!!!
XOIIO knexguy923 years ago

knexguy92 XOIIO3 years ago

How would you stop this? (without using remote desktop etc.)
start in safe mode and delete from you startup folder
You're right. Strt [sic] in safe mode!
you might be able to use a linux boot disk as well (im not saying to try it)
is that true? what is the meaning of (assoc.)?
Yes, it's a command in batch that alters file associations. It's very dangerous to use this command. I've tried to run it on a VPC and it really screwed up teh VPC. See for yourself
I would just use the remote desktop app on my ipod, and go into task manager and shut down and batch files.
IS THAT POSSIBLE? What iPod?
There are ots of apps that yo download, but you need to be on the same wifi network and they suck. Teamviewer is free, works on mac, pc, and ipod and you can set it up so that you dont need to confirm on your pc. Free for any version, as long as it isnt commercial use.
