Multipartite virus

A multipartite virus is a type of compiled virus that can infect both the boot sector and executable files of a computer simultaneously, which makes them unique because of their ability to spread in different ways as a result of these multiple vectors. The first one was Ghostball in 1989, discovered by Fridrik Skulason. These viruses were the first viruses that included DOS executable files and PC BIOS boot sector virus code. Multipartite viruses tend to work fast and some of the infections are subtle and are unnoticed and able to obtain complete control and/or extract any important information from your computer.
