     Comments     : The CRACKER Exterminator-Virus copies itself always to
                    the  same  memory-address $7EA00. It changes the Cool-
                    Capture-Vector to stay resident in memory.

                    If  the  virus-copy-value reaches 4 the virus executes
                    a  Headstep-Routine. This routine can even damage your
                    drives if you`re unlucky, so BE CAREFUL.

                    In the top of the Bootblock you can read:
                    "The CRACKER Exterminator"

                    In the end there is a crypted text, decrypted you can
                    "Hi hacker! your Amiga is infected with a new"
                    "generation of virus called:"
                    "The CRACKER Exterminator! made by A:C:C:W"
                    "[Anti-Cracker-Club-West] have fun you fucking"
                    "cracker !"
