"The Exchange virus/trojan poses as a MTA/MDA server. It is
currently distributed on CD only. It costs between $1500 - $5000,
typically, although some versions cost much more."
"Once installed & deployed as a mail solution, the exchange
virus will periodically crash, causing you to lose all your data.
When you perform the "maintenance routines" specified by the
creator, it can randomly crash as well. The virus is designed to
prevent any back-ups of your data from being successful."
"Once crashed, the very clumsy restore "tools", used in the
proscribed manner in fact corrupt the data further, and lead to
hiring a consultant to reinstall the virus, usually with even worse
settings than before...."
"Fix : Install Sendmail/Unix solution or Lotus Notes, or use any
other available form of communication. It is better to write your
own packets by hand then to get infected by this virus."
