Liberator Virus V5.01:

        Filelength: 16924 unpacked
        Clones: Lamerfry1.3b

        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
        never written this programm.

        In the virus you can read the names from other viruskillers,
        look here:

        'ZeroVirus III'

        (Don`t know, what it`s really for.)

        The virus installs a .fastdir file, which contains some
        kind of timer. If a special value was reached,then the
        following text will be printed to screen:

        '    Congratulations this disk has been liberated'
                      ' of virus protection!!'
        '          Hello from the Liberator virus'

              'The anti-anti-virus is here again!'
                 'Lets play trash the hard disk'
        '             and ram the disk heads'
                '        The piracy curse'
                'Liberator V - The future is near.'
        'Look out for Liberator VI - The final nightmare ...'
