Wyx is a virus that infects partition table and boot sector. Since it is a polymorphic virus, it changes its binary pattern (virus signature) each time it replicates and is not easily detected by an antivirus software. Wyx virus can damage your FAT32 partition on Windows hard drive or a complete floppy disk, while carrying no payload. Thus to recover data, effective Hard Drive Data Recovery software might be required (specifically when backup is absent or corrupted).
Wyx virus spreads if the user unintentionally switches on the Windows computer with a drive, which is infected from the virus. In some rare cases, when it cannot replicate, it destroys the data. Wyx virus stores required boot information plus the left code at the end of first cylinder of a hard drive. To describe such infections further, consider the following instance.
A Windows user tries to boot his computer from a floppy diskette without knowing that the drive is infected from Wyx virus. Consequently, the virus resides in the memory and starts infecting the computer. After some time, you find the computer unbootable and hard drive data inaccessible.
To resolve such issues, you need special techniques and solutions.
