As of BootX v4.30 all the recognition information BootX needs to identify a virus or a bootblock is contained in a file called BootX.Recog. With this menu item you can load different BootX.Recog files than the one BootX loads at started called "BootX.Recog".
When BootX is started it will look for a called 'BootX.BBLib'.This 'Bootblock library'contains custom bootblocks that you can use instead of the standard OldFileSystem or FastFileSystem bootblocks.

Since so many people keep asking me about it... I graduated in june 1991 as a programmer-analyst. BootX was created because at the time (April 1989) I did not trust the available viruskillers. In those days only the SCA and the Byte Bandit bootviruses where a threat to our bootblocks.

BootX v5.23b (Recog v2.25) can find this amount of viruses & trojans:
Bootblock Virus
Link Virus
File Virus
Data Virus
