This BAT file infector acts in almost the same way as other BAT-trojans do. It searches for the string 'GooFy' in every BAT file and, if the string is not found, infects that file. This pest saves itself in the root of the current drive. This spyware doesn't cause any real damage to the infected computer, but it is still recommended to find and remove it as soon as possible.
