Brief Description 

    

Neuroquila is a boot virus that infects the boot sector of hard disks MBR (Master Boot Record) and of floppy disks, as well as files with an EXE extension.

Neuroquila can only infect computers when they are booted from an infected floppy disk.

When a computer is booted from an infected floppy disk, Neuroquila goes memory resident  and infects all the floppy disks accessed by the computer, provided that they are not write-protected.

In addition, Neuroquila  is a polymorphic virus. Depending on the time on the system clock, this virus will infect the computer by encrypting its code in a different way. Furthermore, it uses stealth techniques that allow it to avoid the heuristic scans that some antivirus programs use to detect viruses.

Visible Symptoms 

    

An indication that Neuroquila has infected a computer is that approximately three months after carrying out its infection, it displays the following message on screen:
