AEP is an early 16-bit Windows virus. It is nonmemory resident and specifically infects NewEXE files, .exe's and .dll's. It appears to take its name from American Eagle Publications, a small publisher in the American state of Arizona, known for its books on security topics, including several classic contraversial books on viruses. There is another virus sometimes also named AEP that also has the name Lamark. There is also an OS/2 virus named Arelocs that is often referred to as AEP.
