                      1. If no Disk-Validator program exists on disk
                      or no L: directory, both are built (re-
                      placing Disk-Validator program on disk).
                      2. Virus destroys a block by writing "IRAN"
                      over existing data.
                      3. Virus makes Bitmap NOT VALID, so running
                      Disk-Validator next time will infect System.
                      4. Virus starts diskhead stepping in all floppy
                      drives and writing on disk (if writeable)
                      which will result in trackdisk errors.

                      and an Alert will be displayed with text:
