GV_HS15 Trojan or Karašiš Trojan Virus:
        ---------------------------------------

        Filelength packed:    1460 Bytes (Rob Northern !!!)
                              1924 Bytes (unpacked)

        Other possible names: GVP-HS15 Trojan

        Works only with Kickstart 3.0 and ahead (V39 funtions will be
        used).

        Some other suspicius fact is, that the programm was packed using
        the Rob Northern cruncher, also called Propack. The file was
        afterwards modified a little bit, so that no existing depacker
        can unpack it.

        This trojan is programmed quite simple. The needed libraries will
        be opened and it will we checked for the old SnoopDos task.

        Then the file "s:nothere" will be tested. If it exists, no damage
        will be caused.

        Then a TimeDisplayAlert (timer some seconds) will pop up and show
        you:

                           LMB> Kill system RMB>Reboot


        The code analyzer behind is programmed like this:

        1.If the user gave no input in the 5 seconds and/or presses the
          right mousebutton, the system will be trashed using some basic
          format and delete routines.

        2.If the user presses the left mousebutton, then a ColdReboot
          will be performed.



        SO DON`T START THIS AND IF SUCH A REQUESTER APPEARS, THEN RESET
        YOUR AMIGA BY HAND !


        The routine to show the Alert is a Kickstart V39 function. It will
        be not tested, if the used system is really V39 or higher.

        FileID of this archive (GVP-HS15.lha):

        HardDiskSpeeder v1.5 ęGVP Inc. 1995
        (a little cache program for HDs!)


        ...

        If you start the programm, it will show you the following text:

        'HardDiskSpeeder v1.5 installed ...'


        If you start it using a "?", then the following text will show
        up:

        'HardDiskSpeeder v1.5 by GVP Inc. ę1995'


        The trojan tries to destroy the following directories and devices:

        dh0-dh4, hd0-hd4, l:, libs:, devs:, s: and c:

        The formatted new devices will have the name:

        '"Karašiš Virus strikes back"'
