Type of Infection...: RAM resident, reset resident, bootblock infector
Infection Trigger...: Booting from an infected disk, reset afterwards
Storage Media affec.: Only floppy disks
Systemcalls hooked..: --

Encoding Method.....:
Damage..............: Clears ColdCapture, KickTagPtr, KickCheckSum
                      and sprite DMA.
                      Manipulates DoIo, TrackDisk-BeginIo and
                      CoolCapture.
Damage Trigger......: ColdCapture, KickTagPtr, KickCheckSum will be
                      cleared, BeginIo, and CoolCapture will be
                      manipulate every booting, BeginIo and DoIo call.
                      The sprite DMA will be cleared every 10th disk
                      infection.
                      DoIo will be manipulate every booting, reset and
                      BeginIo.
Particularities.....: This virus will crash Amigas with newer OS
                      versions than 1.3. The programmer knows the ROM
                      addresses of BeginIo and DoIo for OS 1.2 and 1.3
                      and uses them to jump directly into the ROM.
                      So if you have a newer OS version the virus jumps
                      for BeginIo calls to the OS 1.2 ROM address and
                      directly to the next GURU.
                      There is an unused decode routine in the virus.
                      When this routine will be used, a coded area in
                      the virus will be decoded and a text is readable.
