    Promoter 1 Virus:

    Filelength 1848 Bytes (unpacked)

    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:

    '           I am the Kickstart 2.0 - PROMOTER - Virus'
