     Hi All....                                               30 april 2020

     An new trojan has been found. It was shortly on Aminet,  but have been
     removed now, by the admins.
     Origin of the archive: Republic of Serbia
     The trojan will install a bootblock virus, where you can read this:
     Here is some info about the trojan:
     Trojan name... : Jackal dropper
     Trojan file... : vprot10
     Trojan size... : 1884 bytes (packed with CrunchMania)
                    : 2284 bytes (unpacked)
     Trojan archive : vprot.lha
     Archive size.. : 4.322 bytes
     Archive info.. : * Small utility that stays in background and detects
                        any change on resident memory vectors. Very easy to
                        use. Just put VPROTECT in your startup-sequence file
                      * Doesn't work from Workbench.
                      * TIP: if you click both mouse buttons on VPROTECT
                        window it will scan resident memory vectors again. 
                        If nothing happends memory is ok.
                      * Not tested on KS higher than 1.3
                                                               Jxxxx Jxxxxxx

     The programs install a new bootblock virus that we have named 'Jackal',
     this bootblock virus is unknown to all antivirus programs, but with the
     help of  VirusZ_III.Bootblocks  you can find the Jackal virus,  but the
     checksum of the virus changes with each mutation,  but we have added as
     many mutations as we could.  You can read Virus Help Team's test of the
     'Jackal' bootblock virus right here.
     When I was testing the bootblock virus.  Under Kickstart  2.0  and 3.1,
     after  I  rebootet  with  the  virus  in memory  and  booted  from  the
     floppydisk, I did get Checksum errors on the both floppy disk. If it is
     the virus, I'm not sure, but I tried it twice and got same error.

     At this time there are NO antivirus program that will find this trojan.
     Virus Help Team has released the VirusZ_III.Bootblocks, that is our own
     saved bootblocks from our own Amiga.  We have made recognition for many
     utility, demo,  game and even some new bootblock viruses,  and a lot of 
     other harmfull bootblocks not known to any anti-virus programs. You can
     download the archive here: VirusZ_III.Bootblocks. 

     Thanks to CrashDisk for informing us about this trojan.
