    Comments     : This  virus uses the kick-vectors to stay resident. At
                   the top of the virus you can read:

                   [0.5] [1] [1.8] Memory Allocator 3.01


                   The  DoIO()-Vector  will  be  patched  to infect other
                   disks.  Further  the  virus  installs  a  patch in the
                   vertical-blank-interrupt,  to  show after 10 Minutes a
                   (alert)message:

                   ONCE AGAIN SOMETHING WONDERFUL HAPPENED (HE HE HE)..
                   PLEASE POWER OFF - PLEASE POWER OFF - PLEASE POWER OFF

                   This  alert  text  is  coded and cannot be read in the
                   bootblock.

                   NOTE: The Blow Job virus is very similar to the SADDAM
                         HUSSEIN Bootblock virus (ca. 90%). Maybe the
                         same "programmer" ?!?
