Brief Description 

    

Galicia is an encrypted, resident, boot virus that infects the boot sector of hard disks (MBR - Master Boot Record) and floppy disks (BOOT). To infect the MBR of a hard disk the computer must be booted from an infected floppy disk. There is no other way for this virus to carry out an infection. Once the MBR has been infected, the virus goes memory resident and infects all thefloppy disks that are accessed by the machine, providing they are not write-protected.
