    Commodore Virus
    Other name: Commodore/Starlight

    This is a simple destroyprogramm. The file is 1752 bytes long
     and contains the following stuff:

    1.At the start of the programm the adresss $66666 will be in-
     creased by 1.It  depends on the value  in  this  adress, what
     happens.A work of a beginnner ( I think ) because the  string
     "dos.library" can be found 4 times in this short file.
    2.The destroypart: It simple deletes the file "s/startup-
      sequence" and creates an empty directory with the name
      "Commodore war hier !!".

    The following texts can be found in the virus (non crypted!):

    'Commodore war hier !!                   ' 
    '  Ihr Computer ist Überhitzt !!!        '
    '-Wenn es nach dem Reset ein absturz gibt'
    '  SCHALTEN IHN SIE BITTE AUS            '
    '   Commodore 1987                       '
    'Please remove the Write-Protection      '
    'And Press Mouse-Button to Continue      '
    ' KEIN VIRUS IN DRIVE DF0:               '
    '      GEFUNDEN !!                       '
