     Comments     : If your`re starting the virus it tries to copy a fake
                    icon.library in your libs-directory. This fake lib is
                    6680 bytes long.

                    If another  programm  now  uses  this  fake library it
                    startes  a   prozess  with the  name  "input.device ".
                    Additionally  a  patch  in  $74  interrupt  will  be
                    installed. I don`t  know exactly what this patch does.
                    I think this Bomb  is used  to damage  special persons
                    (MODEM-Users !)

                    It`s really difficult to analyse Bombs which are used
                    to damage special persons...... I don`t have a MODEM.
                    This are the only facts I can say about this BlueBox.

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