     Name         : Liquid Acid

     Discovered   : 16 april 2022

     Way to infect: Patches LoadSeg() and installs a port called 'Liquid Acid'

                    Copies only if these conditions are true:
                    - filename doesn't contain '.l' (maybe test for libraries?)
                    - disk is validated
                    - at least 2000 blocks free (so only works on harddisks)
                    - first hunk of file is at least $2000 bytes long

                    This virus keeps the original file size by crunching parts of the infected file
                    and its own code!

                    It contains one bug, calls Allocate() instead of SetProtection() because of
                    wrong library base, but seems to work nevertheless...
