     Symptomatic  : -
     Information  : This virus does not work with Kickstart 2.04 and higher.It checks
                    the  highest  byte  in  the  $6c vector for $fc.This  is  only  a
                    possible value for Kickstart 1.x .If  the  value was not  found,a
                    normal bootblock will be executed.
                    The virus is crypted on disc with a simple "EOR" loop.It  patches
                    the DOIO,the LEVEL3Interrupt and the Coolcapture vectors.
                    The "new" thing  in this virus is,that  it  copies  itself  to  a
                    special adress,which will be calculated with the following rout.:
                                    LEA         $0007F800.L,A1
                                    TST.L       $004E(A6)
                                    BEQ.B       Abs_Copy
                                    MOVEA.L     $004E(A6),A1
                                    LEA         -$0800(A1),A1
                    Abs_Copy        MOVE.L      A1,-(A7)
                                    MOVE.W      #$0398,D0
                    Copy_Loop       MOVE.B      (A0)+,(A1)+
                                    DBRA        D0,Copy_Loop   
                    This means that no adress exists,where this virus can be always
                    found.The patched DOIO vector does not ask for  the  TRACKDISK-
                    The following adresses will be changed in the next parts of the
                    The $d80002.L register  is (I heard it only) an  old  register
                    for the internal clock.The bootblock will be crypted everytime
                    new (depending on one special register).
