Liberator Virus V5.01:
Filelength: 16924 unpacked
This virus is quity tricky. It copies the file c/run and
renames it. It adds to the shell startup the commands:
';liberatorV - controlling me!'
'alias copy delete'
'alias delete "echo *"No file to delete, cant find*""'
If you have once started once such a modified shell, then
quickly load an editor and remove the three lines. Then
reset and it should work correct again.
The startup-sequence will be directly changed so, so that
the virus will be activated every time.
If you start the virus, the following message will appear
on the window:

This message is only to cheat the user, Peter Stuer has
