Brief Description 

    
This is an MS-DOS multipartite, polymorphic, stealth virus that infects floppy disks (boot) and hard disks (MBR) boot sectors. In addition, it infects files with EXE and COM extensions, as well as overlay files.

This virus is considered to be quite dangerous, as it overwrites the first sectors of the hard disk. It goes into action when one of the already infected files is run. Then, Natas.4988 infects other files (EXE, COM, OVL).

Visible Symptoms 

    

Files are infected when they are accessed. The viral code contains the following text:

Yes I know my enemies
They're the teatchers who taught me to fight me
Compromise, conformity, assimilation, submission
Ignorance, hypocrisy, brutality, the elite
All of whitch are American dreams
(c) 1994 by Never-1(Belgium Most Hated)
