     Visible text : *** The Starcom BLACKOUT (c) 1993 ***

     Comments     : The Program does NOT reserve memory beyond $7F000.
                    This means that other programs,  such as VT,  can be loaded here
                    As the hidden  KickTag-pointer is residing in part of EXEC, that
                    is protected, this can result in; "Unknown Program" or "ResStruc
                    bend" errors.
                    With 5MB memory, this viruspart  was recoginzed in memory. Under
                    KickStart 1.3, given  this size of  memory,  the  program  won't
                    survive a Reset, and the virus can't multiply using "DoIo."
