     Comments     : If  you  are  booting  with an ANGEL-infected disk the
                    virus  allocates  chip-memory, copies itself into this
                    address  and patches the PutMsg & Wait vector from the

                    In  the  virus  there is a programm error.  If you are
                    reseting  your AMIGA you will get an endless GURU. So:
                    No  spreading !!  The bootblock is crypted with a byte
                    depending of $DFF007-register.  In the decrypted boot 
                    block you can read:

                    "The  Travel  of  the Angel-Virus Generation Nr.00000"
