EGABTR, sometimes pronounced "Eggbeater", was a Trojan horse program that achieved some level of notoriety in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Allegedly a graphics utility that would improve the quality of an EGA display, it actually was malware that deleted the file allocation tables on the hard drive.[1][2] This deletion was accompanied by a text message reading "Arf! Arf! Got you!".[3] Various sources disagree as to the exact wording.
