    DumDum 2 Bootblockvirus:
    Uses blocks 0-5 and works with Kickstart 3.0 and 2.04. The
    virusmaincode is located in block 2 and 3. The first  both
    blocks  only  contain  a simple loaderroutine (trackdisk).

    All data in the blocks 2-5  will  be  destoyed  (sorry  no
    rescue possible). If a file was in this blocks, it  cannot
    be used anymore.

    Changed vectors:
                      Cool, Doio, DosRead, DosOpen, DosWrite.

    If a counter reached $50, a destroyroutine will be started
    and e.g. the rootblock will be changed.

    In the 4.virusblock you can read 2 time "dos.library"  and

    The  virus   will  be  installed  $1800  bytes  under  the
    maxlocmem area !

    Special thanks must go to Ingo Schmidt for supporting this

    Removal: Kickstart 1.2 & 1.3 : VT-Schutz v3.17
