     Damage       : a) Increases itself through the BB.
                    b) As soon as a counter register has  reached the
                    value $B a block gets filled with trash. There is
                    NO rescue for that block.  Try to rescue anything
                    with DiskSalv 2.  When the virus  has damaged the
                    block it  decodes a part of the BB with EOR.L D1,
                    D0 and it writes with DisplayAlert:
                    Meet your new friend,The Rastenborg Virus v1.2 
                    Congratulations! Disk in drive is unprotected.
                    It probably has no more root block,but who cares.
