Back in the old days we used to keep a sacrificial machine to infect with a 
suspected virus to document the symtoms. MBR  hammers were the big deal back 
Just about any anti virus company should be able to take your suspected 
binary and figure out what it will do when cut loose.
Ever since a simple 5 clock tic add function took 4 meg to write these days 
I gave up hunting bugs.
Love the fact that Dshield is here to help those of us who either gave up or 
just got old as in my case...Thanks "D" Folks.
Also thanks for the link to ZoneLog.  Never sent a report but never found a 
hacker that wasn't fun to watch.
Now that I said that all hell will break loose...LOL.
Have fun and I hope you solve your query of the mysterious code you have. If 
I had it I would just look at the hex and see what its doin' but I don't 
have it and don't want it. Best wishes, Lem
