     Comments     : This  nasty  Anti-Elien trojan file is found in a file
                    called "elien.exe": 1016 bytes PowerPacked: 596 bytes.

                    This  trojan  is  found  at  several  bulletin  boards
                    worldwide  in  an archive named anti_elien.lha without
                    ANY... doc ??? What do you think ??? strange isn't????
                    The Anti-Elien  trojan  is  told  to  be a new kind of
                    anti-virus  program against the Elien viruses to place
                    in your startup-sequence, but don't trust it....

                    In  the Elien viruschecker trojan 0.1 you can read the
                    following ASCII txt: 

                    "Elien_virus_checker v0.1 by zupa/T.L.X.

                    If you are starting the Elien viruschecker trojan file
                    the  DosTrace 2.20  will give you the following system
                    messages in an endless loop:

                            " elien.exe: Writing 9 bytes to 
                            "Workbench2.1:MeGaSUXX.TXT": OK"
                            .......and so on...............

                    If  you are starting the Elien Trojan it to late to do
                    anything against it.  The trojan creates a new file on
                    the  "SYS:"-Device  which is called "MeGaSUXX.TXT" and
                    writes in a loop (100000 times) the letters "aaaaaaaa"
                    in  this file. If you`re now reseting your Amiga while
                    and writeing it can cause harderrors ! Be careful with
                    this devil ones!!

                    If your floppy disk or HD comes up with errors such as
                    checksum  errors  you  can always use a repair program
                    as DiskSalv or like to repair it!
