     Comments     : The Virus changes the GlobalVectorTable from
                    the dos.library (DOS_BASE+$2E). It is a
                    Traveling Jack 1 clone. The only differences

                    a) The viruscode isn`t coded.

                    b) It creates a message_text with the name
                       "Antichrist.X". The X depends of $DFF006.

                    The texts like "Antichrist" aren`t visible in the
                    virusfile. (Coded with a eor-loop).
                    This virus is only dangerous for kickstart 1.2 and
                    1.3 user, because of the GlobalTable-Patch

     Removal      : Kickstart 1.2 & 1.3 : VT-Schutz v3.17
