VIRUS NAME: Linux/Alfa

VIRUS NAME: Linux/Alfa

Virus Characteristics

The Linux/Alfa virus was included inside a virus collector set that was sent to AVERT. The malicious code has not been encountered "in the wild". Linux/Alfa is not a true virus, it doesn't spread recursively. Basically, there is a dropper file called "a", when run against a target ELF binary file, that file will be infected. During testing, this routine didn't work well unless the target files were specifically renamed to a certain filename - not disclosed here. The modified files didn't spread recursively.


-Modified ELF binary files

Method Of Infection

ELF binary files may get infected when they're manually targeted. Linux/Alfa doesn't spread recursively.
