I found this:

"Dox.2794 File infector 08/29/02"

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r4270990-Daily-NAV-IU-for-8-29-02

And a possible "15 Aug 2000 00:00:00 (GMT)"

http://www.sophos.com/en-us/threat-center/threat-analyses/viruses-and-spyware/Dox-2794.aspx

Don't have time to dig any further at the moment.
