    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 ....
