Ika-tako Virus

I've looked all over and I can't even seem to find an actual name for this virus (meaning, have they named it something like Virus.Win32.Ika-tako so we know what to search for?. I can't even find the other one he wrote in 2008 (but I found the name for it, Trojan.Pirlames, no AV product actually called it "Harada") here or anywhere else.

This doesn't even sound much like a virus, more like a trojan, since it replaces (does not seem to infect) files, and not with a copy of itself. However, they both seem pretty cool, and I hope to try them out on a virtual machine.

Thanks

You are right.
