    Overkill Virus

    - Overkill VIRUS BB Block 0-3 also KS2.04, always from $ 7F700
         Cool, KickCheckSum, SumKickData, DoIo
         does NOT ask trackdisk.device = also HD !!!!!!!

         Name reasons:
         decoded can be read in the memory: Overkill by the ENEMY!

         Decoding routine part:
                        sub.b d6, d5
                        move.b d5, (a5) +
         fetches 4 blocks:
         Block 0 u. 1 = virus
         Block 2 u. 3 = OrigBB not coded
         Recodes every virus for BB depending on $ DFF006
         stores 4 blocks, i.e. a file the block 2 u. 3 occupied,
         is destroyed.

         Damage: (also HD !!!!!!!!)
         - Determines a block number via $ DFF006
         - Writes TWO blocks (is new) with memory content.
           i.e. in the worst case, Block1 is at the end of a file
           and Block2 at the beginning of a second file.
           These files cannot be saved. In the 1st destruction block
           is available from $ 22 Overkill by the ENEMY!. Since NO block
           evaluation can also be a Dir-Block, ListBlock etc.
           to be destroyed. Please try to save with disksalv,
           what is still useful.

           You see: It can also hit the rigid area !!!

           With OrigBB you can copy Block2-3 to Block0-1
           and save.

         Original test by Heiner Schneegold
         Translated from german to english by Google translate
        This  virus  works with all Kickstarts and even on turboboards.  It
        writes the original bootblock to the block 2-3 and destroys in this
        way some possible data on this tracks.

        Changed  vectors:   DoIO, CoolCapture, ColdCapture (always with the
        same adresses).

        Warning:   This virus clears sometimes sectors on devices.  Danger!
        You  can  loose  your  RigidDiskBlock of your HD or the bootsectors
        because of some bugs in the DoIO routines(no security check for the
        trackdisk device).
