         Propagation: BB
         Damage: Writes STC!aw to a block and renders the file
                 unusable. NO rescue possible.
         Particularities: In Boot-aids there is a routine:
                     cmpi.b #8,3(a0)
                     bne.s $FEEF6
         This causes that only one datablock will be destroyed.
         This routine has been disabled by Starcom 5 as the bne.s
         has been replaced by a NOP.
