          |    Miami 2.1g - MUI based TCP/IP stack
          |    Cracked executables with fake keys!
          `-[15/09/97]-------------------------[ 7eN ]
        But on the Miami homepage you could read:
        Note: The current version 2.1g is identical to 2.1f
        except for a new version of Miami Register. If you are
        currently using 2.1f and have already registered then you
        do not need to download 2.1g.
        So there was NO 2.1g version ?????
        The current version of the 2.1p was in Nov. 97
        So the danger should be minimal.

        Damage: (third-party statement)
        Ok guyz so this is supposed to be a dC release
        of Miami 2.1g ... cept those guyz didn't do it
        What it IS however is a totally pathetic attempt
        to release a fake in order to gain access to machines it
        is run on.
        The concept is that some sucker runs this crap and
        then n e 1 can telnet or letnet to their port 13 and all
        going to plan the remote sys will get a juicy shell prompt
        to steal various goodies like Miami.default etc :)
        Now for the funny bit ... this is so poorly done its
        the work of a braindead simpleton, and I'm not even sure
        that it works because of the implementation as there are
        a few things it relies on ... yes thats right, it still
        needs some help :)
     - You must MANUALLY configure this version in Miami.
     - Importing previous settings or using MiamiInit
       stuffs up their plan (methinks).
     - A rudimentary Miami Firewall screws it totally.
     - You have to be stupid enuff not to notice the
       CLI bit in the database settings
     Is all the above likey ... hahaha .... NO!
     So in summary ... thanx to the guyz that did this, it made
     my somewhat boring and miserable day ... I laughed for ages!

     - Later RaMoNsTeR :)
       I hope this version really does not exist in the original
       (see above), otherwise it could lead to error detection.
       VT offers deletions.

     Removal: Kickstart 1.2 & 1.3 : VT-Schutz v3.17
              Kickstart all others: VirusZ III with Xvs.library installed
