Brief Description 

    

Duts.1520 is a virus that only infects executable files with an EXE extension in those platforms with a Windows CE (Pocket PC versions 2000, 2002 and 2003) operating system installed.

In order to do so, Duts.1520 creates a copy of its code in the last section of the EXE file, and then redirects the point of entry to that code.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Duts.1520 is easy to recognise, as it displays a window with the following characteristics whenever an infected file is executed:

  • Title:
    WinCE4.Dust by Ratter/29A
  • Message:
    Dear User, am I allowed to spread?
