     Comments     : The  Warhawk-Virus copies itself to address $7E600. To
                    stay   resident   in  memory  the  virus  patches  the
                    CoolCapture-Vector.  After  the  next reset  the virus
                    additionally   patches  the  DoIO()-Vector  to  infect
                    other disks. 

                    After  the  4.th infection the virus gives out a (very
                    nice-looking) GFX-Message. In the middle of the screen
                    scrolls  the  following little  message and behind the
                    scroll there are some color-scrolls too:

                    "WARHAWK  SAYS:  KILLING YOUR DISKS WITH OUR VIRUS IS"
                    "A WONDERFUL THING! CONTACT: UCS, PLK 000257-A"
                    "3457 STADTOLDENDORF! HEY BAD! FUCK OFF"
