ConMan Virus:

        This is a trojan horse against the AmiExpress mailbox system.
        It tries to work with the User Files from the /X System,  but
        it`s so lame coded, that it has several problems with it.

        This virus probably appears as the ARTM2.3 fake Virus because
        the virus is linked at ARTM.

        The viruses uses memory at $4f000 to decode a  little  string
        saying: "CONMAN/HACKMASTER/93/TROJAN-Virus".

        The whole virus looks like a work from a  beginner, who  once
        read an article about /X ! Better play with your joystick !

        The virus does not work on an AMIGA with MC68000 processors,
        because the virus decodes a string at a nonequal adress!

        Other possible name: ARTM BBS Virus

        Comment 19.12.1993.: Today I got the message  on  Diabolo  to
        take care of my pws, because ConMan tried  to hack  mailboxes
        in the last days. It seems to be an active hacker ....
