This one seems to be a little trojan, which tries to copy itself
from disc to disc using the disc-valida tor. It will be tried to
write a new file called "df0:l/disc-validator". The virus contains
no real destructive routine and is only interesting for KS < 2.04.
The virus contains a little intuition routine to display some
texts. This routine is buggy, because a cachefault will be made.
Pure code from a beginner.
You can read the following texts in the virus:
'Learn from the great master about the my'steries of BCPL'
'I am the Kickstart 2.0 - PROMOTER - Virus'
'Please stop using Kickstart 1.2/1.3'
'and I will stop bothering you'
'This masterpiece of brilliant software was designed by'
'the marvellous VaginaMan, always deep inside the mysteries'

'you to switch over to Kickstart 2.0 !!'
'This is PROMOTER 1, coming soon PROMOTER 2, which won't be such
'nice as Number 1'

'your data, because Number 2 will be very'
