    Liberator Virus V5.01:
    
    Filelength: 16924 unpacked
    Clones: Lamerfry1.3b


    This virus is quity tricky. It copies the file c/run and
    renames it. It adds to the shell startup the commands:
        

    ';liberatorV - controlling me!'
    'alias copy delete'
    'alias delete "echo *"No file to delete, cant find*""'

    If you have once started once such a modified shell, then
    quickly load an editor and remove the three lines. Then
    reset and it should work correct again.

    The startup-sequence will be directly changed so, so that
    the virus  will be activated every time.

    If you start the virus, the following message will appear
    on the window:


    PV(Protect Vectors) v1.02 by Peter Stuer',0
    'July 22, 1992 FREEWARE'

    'Reset vectors ok, Nothing resident, Trackdisk.'
    'device not intercepted, '
    'DoIO ok, VBlank ok, low interrupts ok, '
    'dos.library not intercepted.',0

    'monitoring vectors...'
    'Fully Kickstartv2.xx compatible, stops all'
    ' viruses, checks disk-validators,',0
    'Use run to push this program into the '
    'background.',0


    This message is only to cheat the user, Peter Stuer has
    never written this programm.

    In the virus you can read the names from other viruskillers,
    look here:

    'ZeroVirus'
    'VIRUSEXPERT'
    'ZeroVirus III'
    'Virus_Checker'
    'Master_Virus_Killer_v2.1'
    'BLVC'
    'Berserker'
    'BerserkerV5.0'
    'Virus_Checker(C)'
    'Nuke!'

    (Don`t know, what it`s really for.)

    The virus installs a .fastdir file, which contains some
    kind of timer. If a special value was reached,then the
    following text will be printed to screen:


    '    Congratulations this disk has been liberated'
                  ' of virus protection!!'
    '          Hello from the Liberator virus'
                ' v5.01 - Random Disaster'
          'The anti-anti-virus is here again!'
             'Lets play trash the hard disk'
    '             and ram the disk heads'
            '        The piracy curse'
            'Liberator V - The future is near.'
    'Look out for Liberator VI - The final nightmare ...'
            'coming soon from a lame swapper near you!'
    '           Respect to the virus masters                 
           Lamer Exterminator,crime & Contrast.'
        'And remember - be excellent to each other!'
