This is basically a weak Disrupter Missile without a guidance or propulsion system (in fact, these two weapons are made by the same company.) These mines wipe out the flight control systems of any ship they come into contact with, leaving the ship immobile for several seconds. Viral mines can affect capital ships and other vessels, but in general are far weaker than Disrupter missiles.
