First NTFS virus for Windows 2000

The first virus for the NTFS (New Technology File System) of Windows 2000 has arrived! It is called 'Win2K.Streams'.

It nests in extended attributes of the file system, so-called streams, and infects files by copying itself into the main stream and the actual file in another stream stores. The virus still subverts all virus scanners, but the virus definition updates are already being vigorously worked on.
