Brief Description 

    

Gelcan.A is a worm without destructive effects that spreads by making copies of itself in the floppy disk drive.

When Gelcan.A activates, it goes memory resident and attempts to access the floppy disk drive every few minutes in order to make copies of itself.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Gelcan.A is easy to recognize, as it attempts to access the floppy disk drive every few minutes, in order to make copies of itself. If there is no floppy disk inserted on the floppy disk drive, this may cause to appear a warning message on screen.
