Cambridge, UK, November 11, 1999 - Kaspersky Lab Int., an international anti-virus software company, reports the discovery of a new Windows virus with a great potential for spreading across corporate networks. Win32.FunLove has been found "in-the-wild". It means that there is a real threat to all computer users to be infected with this virus.
It is not a dangerous memory resident parasitic Win32 virus. It affects PE EXE files on local and network drives. Because of its network spreading ability the virus can infect the local network from one infected workstation, in case the network access permissions allow writing for this workstation.
