Casino (computer virus)
The casino computer virus is a malicious virus that upon running the infected file, copies the FATs to RAM, then deletes the FAT from the hard disk. It challenges the user to a game of Jackpot of which they have 5 credits to play with, hence the name. No matter if they win or lose, the computer shuts down, thereby making them have to reinstall MS-DOS. The message it shows when it challenges you reads:
DISK DESTROYER - A SOUVENIR OF MALTA
I have just DESTROYED the FAT on your Disk !!
CASINO DE MALTE JACKPOT
The casino computer virus activates on the 15th of January, April, August.
