     Size         : 1024 bytes

     Symptoms     : No Symptoms

     Discovered   : 7 july 1994

     Way to infect: Boot Infection

     Rating       : Dangerous

     Kickstarts   : 1.2

     Damage       : This bootblock virus is  not resetproof  and kills ColdCapture,
                    Coolcapture and the KickTagPointer. To spread itself it patches
                    the DoIO vector from Exec (quite strange way of patching).
                    The virus uses the memory  from $6e800+1024 bytes  to place its
                    code.  The memory will  be not  allocated and  so every program
                    can trash it and as a result your computer goes to India.
                    I have tested  it with VW on  an A500+ with 1MB  Chip and I had
                    very often a complete systemcrash.
                    After 35  infections a  little message  will be displayed using
                    DisplayAlter from the intuition lib.:

                    Kickstart versions.  Other destruction routines are not placed
                    in the virus.
