The mission objective drops from the last ship destroyed in group 4.

- Kill group 4, loot the can which is dropped from the last ship in group 4
- Make sure you can tank group 3, 4 and 5 at the same time

The loot is also pretty poor, and most of it ended up being Amarr Tags.

Veldspar - 51 asteroids

Standing hits
Killing one of the transporters incurs a 2.4% standing penalty

The Viral Agent was dropped in a can by the last ship I killed and not the third transport. The ship that dropped it for me was an Imperial Templar Muzakir.

I tried to blitz this by killing all 3 transports only to find 10 military units in each. So I went ahead and killed all but Group 5. The ship out of group 4 that dropped the Viral Agents was the Imperial Cruiser. Which I am pretty sure was the last ship I killed from group 4. Considering DarkRooster's comment above I think it is more likely that the last ship killed in group 4 will drop the mission loot.

I too tried the blitz advice on the page and found it to be incorrect. I'm will edit the page and remove it.

I warped onto this mission, and it took me straght to main room on top of all rats which I thoguht was strange... I went to station, then when I went back, I ended up at a warp gate first?? Really weird.

Viral Agent was dropped by last transport destroyed and not last ship.

lots of confusion in comments about the blitz. it's actually the last ship destroyed in group 4 (transport group) that drops the container and mission completion.

I attacked group 4 before 5 and 6 (or rather they attacked me). I killed them all, transports last, 3rd transport dropped the Viral Agent. I never got aggro from the remaining groups that are supposed to aggro when you tackle group 4.

For me I destroyed all groups but group 5 first, the viral agent was dropped by the last transport I killed (which was also the last ship in group 4) Group 5 never aggroed me until I attacked it (even after killing all of group 4 including the transports.)

Confirmed blitz - kill group 4 only, last ship I killed (transport) in group 4 dropped Viral Agent.

Confirmed blitz again: Killed last of Group 4 (this gave green obj completed in journal), last ship killed in Group 4 dropped the virals required to complete mission.

not sure if this changed or if I just wasn't paying attention. Imperial Tamir cruiser dropped the can and also hit me with an energy NEUTRALIZER
