Hi Groepaz, thanks for the feedback, I wasn't aware there was a documented source code floating around (not talking disassembly here) of BHP, I found a pretty good writeup on it by Symantec though. If you in any case know where I can get a copy of BHP and that magazine with the virus tutorial you'll make me a happy person.

na, not the first documented one.... a dissection of the BHP virus existed for a ling time, and there even was a virus programming tutorial once in some mag (magic disk iirc)

*Sigh* I just found out it won't compile on 64tass 1.51.992 because I've put things that should be .text into .byte Will fix the source and reupload.

No, it's certainly not the first, there are more viruses residing in the 1541 memory, like HIV2. Difference it though that this one is slightly shorter and it allocates a sector for its code instead of overwriting a sector at track 19 regardless whether it was allocated. It's nothing novel, but it's the first fully documented source code of how a virus works on the C64.

I would guess that many (even most?) viruses do that? (reside in drive RAM, that is)

Cool Idea to keep the virus in the diskdrive instead of daah CPU. Is that a first for the 64 or do the old virii do that as well?
