The Butt Stink virus was received in January, 1993, and is probably
from North America. Butt Stink is a non-resident, direct action

When a program infected with the Butt Stink virus is executed, this
virus will infect all of the .EXE files located in the current
directory. Infected programs will have a file length increase of
540 bytes with the virus being located at the end of the file. The
program's date and time in the DOS disk directory listing will not
be altered. The following text strings are encrypted within the
Butt Stink virus' code:

"Your Butt Stinks!!!"
"And YAM can't stand it!"
The last three lines of text above forms a message which will
occassionally be displayed on the system monitor when an infected
program is executed.
