     Comments     : If you are booting with an Katrin infected disk,  the virus copies
                    itself to $7EC00.  To infect  disks  the virus patches the DOIO()-
                    Vector. Resident  by changing  the  Cool-Vector.  Sometimes a GFX-
                    Message appeares (while booting!)

     Info         : Only the text has been changed in the bootblock, it is a true copy
                    of Killed virus.  After 25 years of  antivirus work, I still can't
                    understand  why anyone are doing  this stuff.  Use your Amiga  for
                    something usefull, and don't make stuff like this.
