Brief Description 

    

Phage is a virus designed to infect files running under the PDA Palm Pilot platform. This virus is capable of replicating and infecting other programs on the Palm device. Infected files are rendered useless after infection.

The virus is contained in a file 1325 bytes long, and it infects executable files for Palm Pilot with PRC extension. This virus renders infected files useless, so disinfection of these files is not possible.

Visible Symptoms 

    

When an infected file is opened, the program exits and apparently no other actions are performed. However, the virus proceeds to infect all the programs installed on the system.
