WinFastener is a joke program/trojan on Microsoft Windows that never entered the wild, and was coded as a special release for one of the popular YouTuber Danooct1's videos. While it was created by a user, it was not added to the user-made malware as it was not made at the time.

Payload

When executed, it displays the following message:

 A32
 Hello. This is A32. I just want to say that I really miss the times when viruses didnt slowly corrupt and take over your system, but instead banged you with a message that sayed your system is 0wned. Dont you just miss those times?
 [ OK ]

If the user clicks the "OK" button, the virus changes the message text to be labeled as "Your system is 0wnd", then, the malware moves the message box across the screen while an MP3 audio of the Garry's Mod video What Happens when Louis gets his Pills, after this, it deletes the critical file "hal.dll" (Hardware Abstraction Layer DLL), causing the computer boot to fail.
