Payloads

When a program infected with Antimon is executed, the Antimon virus will infect all previously uninfected .COM files located in the C:drive root directory. Since COMMAND.COM normally resides in this directory, it will be infected as well. Antimon infected files increase in size by 1,452 to 1,465 bytes. The virus will be located at the end of all infected files. There will be no change in the file's date and time in a DOS disk directory listing. The following text strings will be found within the viral code of Antimon infected programs:

"*.com" 
"????????COM" 
"FLUSHOT3.COM"
"C:\PANDA\MONITOR.COM TSRMON.COM TSRMONEZ.COM"
"= C:\PDPROG"
