According to the "forums" of the PlayStation 2 game, .hack//Liminality, seven people were killed when the virus had struck their computers. The way it did this was to emit a strobe light effect on the computer at fast speeds. If anyone were to look at it on their monitors, it would damage their pituitary gland severely enough to kill them.
