The Human Greed virus was received in December, 1994. Its origin
or point of isolation is unknown. Human Greed is a non-resident,
direct action infector of .EXE files. It contains some code to
overwrite the system hard disk.
When a program infected with the Human Greed virus is executed, this
virus will infect some .EXE files located on the system hard disk.
Infected files will not increase in size, but will have the first
666 bytes overwritten by the viral code. The file's date and time
in the DOS disk directory listing will not be altered. The following
text strings are encrypted within the Human Greed viral code:
"*.EXE *.COM .."

Do not wast your time
