Promoter 1 Virus:

        Filelength 1848 Bytes (unpacked)

        This one seems to be a little trojan, which tries to copy itself
        from disc to disc using the disc-validator. 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:
