Quote:
W32.Kittykat is a virus that splits itself into many parts, and adds these parts to all RAR archive files in the current directory and the parent directory.

When executed, it performs the following actions:

1. Reconstructs itself as the following file: [RANDOM FILENAME].exe
2. Displays a message to announce its presence.
3. Searches for files to infect. The virus has no infection marker, so an already infected RAR archive file in the current or parent directory will be infected repeatedly.
