     Comments     : The  Lamer Exterminator 8 Virus  is a very dangerous
                    virus.  It  patches  the  BeginIO()-Vector  from the
                    trackdisk.device  to  infect  other disks. The virus
                    uses the KICK-Vectors + SumKickData to stay resident
                    Sometimes the virus formats the disk.
                    The whole Bootblock is crypted ($DFF006).
