     Comments     : The virus uses the KICK-Vectors to stay resident.
                    It copies itself always to the same mem-adress:
                    $7E100. The Kick-Identification-String is always
                    ">>> Suicide Machine by MAX ... etc"
                    It uses the DoIO()-Vector from the EXEC-Lib to
                    infect other disks. Additionaly it patches the
                    Supervisor()-Vector to: 

                    a) Set the DoIO() always to the virus value

                    b) Clear the Cool & Cold Capture

                    c) Make sure to stay resident while it sets the
                       KICK-Vectors to the virus value
                    The virus codes itself by every infection with
                    the VHPOSR-Register ($DFF006).
