      Recently, this structure has appeared more and more frequently in the context of
      linked viruses. The viruses are usually around "old" parts that are not recognized
      because the test longwords are in a different place.
      Presumably the structure was developed by a scene group, to be able to link an
      intro to a program.
      This structure is now being copied (or it even exists a program for it ??).
      So PLEASE, PLEASE do not delete every $ 4eb9 immediately, but rather think
      about it and first copy the file to another disc.
      Most of the programs found will likely be assigned to the scene, d. H. the game will
      stop after deleting DO NOT walk anymore. Please help to create the virus programs
      filter out and send the programs to me, please. If it works with Tel. No.. I'll call you
      back as soon as I do that Part have deciphered. I reaffirm that both Telephone 
      numbers as well as addresses after completing the work in like the trash can.

      The linked virus part starts at $ 84
      The trigger hunk starts at $ 48. It is very short (4) and contains only 2 jump 
      commands jsr ($ 4EB9), moveq 0, d0 (7000) and a rts (4e75). This is followed by a 
      reloc hunk for the jsr commands.
      The 1st jsr command installs the virus part and returns.
      The 2nd jsr command executes the utility program and returns after loading end of
      the program back. Then d0 is deleted and with rts finished the whole file. As simple
      as that.

      Note 06/07/93:
      4EB9 links have also surfaced with the virus part with the 2nd jsr command is installed.
      ALL linked virus parts were packed, probably to minimize reloc problems.

      NOTE from VT2.54:
      You can now switch off part 1 or 2 in the file requester.
      Link1off - switches off program part 1.
      Link2off - switches off program part 2.
      Of course, this can only be an EMERGENCY NAIL. It is better if you send me the 
      contaminated part and ease it even more show me my work in case you happen to be 
      using the program have an unlinked state.
      Please make two copies of the linked program different name copies on an otherwise
      empty disc. Switching then click link 1 on copy 1 and link 2 on copy 2.
      If you are lucky, a working program is without it Virus part or without an intro !!
      But !!! It is also possible that the main program is NOT more is running. Why ?
      Example: A group has linked an intro to a game. Then can in this intro already changes
      on the computer (FastRam from switching, etc.), which the game requires.
      Without the intro, the game will logically not run. able to. Examples are known !!!!
      NOTE: A file with the LINK switched off will NOT be passed on!

      Note 06/28/93:
      The generator program for the $ 4EB9 link seems to have been found.
      A program called: Chain V0.23
      Thanks for the hint

      Note 9/24/93: A new 4EB9 variant is said to have appeared.
