Virus Hoax: Death 69Name: Death69
This is not a real virus, but a hoax. This hoax was first posted to a Prodigy newsgroup in early December 1996.
Here is some of the text of the "warning" hoax:
**** There is a horrible new virus on the loose! Created late November by elite hacker "DEATH-BLAZE". The virus is full stealth Trojan, once thought never possible, it first formats the hard drive, then it physically eats at the materials of the drive. Researchers are stunned, they say it is possible the most destructive virus ever created. The virus's name is "death69" witch as I stated earlier ws created by elite hacker "DEATH-BLAZE" ***
