Win32 executable file virus

W32/Magistr-A is a polymorphic Windows 32 executable file virus which spreads by infecting files and via email. Magistr includes highly destructive code which - if triggered - can delete all files from local and network drives, wipe the CMOS settings, and flash the BIOS chip of your computer.

If the computer has been infected for two months, then, on odd days, the desktop icons are repositioned when the mouse pointer approaches, giving the impression that the icons are "running away" from the mouse.
