40Hex Issue 4 December 1991 How Lame Are These People? ------------------------- This text is from the Homebase BBS, Mcaffee's board, all I can say is read it. Special apperance from Data Distruptor of Rabid and Lestat/Skism, AKA me... Read on... Msg#: 5712 *viru* 11-19-91 17:11:34 From: TERRY ROSS To: ALL Subj: IS THIS A VIRUS? Hi. Is there a known virus which displays a screen which reads "INC, for quality cracks?" I have recently inherited a computer at the company I work at and there was apparently some tetris and blockout games on the disk which are the source of this message. I found a file called "runme.bat" with the text in it, but even after I deleted it, it still pops up the aforementioned message. Also, the message gives me a choice of EGA CGA or monochrome and in general, the message makes life difficult for me. any help with this would be vastly appreciated. <*>Replies <A>gain, <R>eply, <N>ext, or <S>top?

It's not a virus. INC is the International Network of Crackers. What they do is unprotect games and distribute them. What you do have is most likely illegally obtained software. <->, <D>elete, <A>gain, <R>eply, <N>ext, or <S>top? End of Replies, add yours(Y/N)?
