- Top util Virus    Length unpacked: 2260 Bytes
  Other name: TopDog 1.0

  Name reason: In File can be read: Top util by
  Zacker of EnSoniC V1.0.

  Was sendt to me unpacked. Wich is why VT only recognise
  the virus in unpacked state. Not resident in memory, so
  there is no need for memory recognition. As it do not
  spread, by defenition it is not a virus. It is a desturktive
  file targeted at BBS sites. Not dangerous to users without
  a Mail-Box.

 It camuflages itself by Cli-messege:
 Top util By Zacker of EnSoniC V1.0
 Call Zack BBS 16.8 HST 407-232-6324 HST ONLY!!

USEAGE: Top (num /ALL) <-Hfname> <-Sfname> <-Ttext>
    num : Min. megs to get on the list
    ALL : Show all users (default to BBS:User.rpt)
    -H  : Use the file name after -H as the TOP hdr
          if no -s is used default =  BBS:user.rpt
    -T  : text to be used with top dog
        : TOPDOG (I just added)
    -S  : Use the file name after -S as TOP list

But in reality it damages: is rewriten, with a new length of 66 Bytes,
    thereby loosing the old files contents.
