    Leviathan Virus (Bootblock+File):
    
    This virus is a  quite tricky combination between  BB and file
    virus. It can be written as a normal  bootblock  to  disk  and
    it  can  write  a file in the  first position of  the Startup-
    Sequence.

    The virus uses the memory from $7f000-$7e000 direct.
    At first  the viruscod e will be  copied  and  after this, the
    memoryblock will be allocated.

    ColdCapture, OldOpenLibrary and DoIO will be changed.
    The Coldcapture  Routine  initializes the  DoIo and  the  Old-
    Openroutines.

    I have tested this virus  with a normal A500+ and an A4000 but
    the ResetRoutine of this virus does not work on this computers
    You have to coldreset your machine.


    At the end there is a crypted textblock:

    'YOU ARE THE OWNER OF A NEW GENERATION OF'
    ' VIRUS! IT FUCKS YOUR STARTUP-SEQUENCE! '
    'HAVE FUN.... '

    In  this virus was no special  destroy routine found  (except
    the BB write command).
