This one seems to be a little trojan, which tries to copy itself
from disc to disc using the disc-validator. It will be tried to
write a new file called "df0:l/disc-validator". The virus contains
no real destructive routine and is only interesting for KS <2.04.
The virus contains a little intuition routine to display some
texts. This routine is buggy, because a cachefault will be made.
Pure code from a beginner.
You can read the following texts in the virus:
'Learn from the great master about the my'steries of BCPL'
' I am the Kickstart 2.0 - PROMOTER - Virus'
