     Comments     : The  virus copies itself at address $7F800 and patches
                    the KICK vectors to stay resident in memory.

                    To  infect  other  disks  the  virus  uses  the DOIO()
                    vector.  Because  of  the direct Kick1.2 ROM-Jumps the
                    virus just works on Kick1.2 machines. 

                    If  you  are  booting with an infected disk on Kick1.3
                    or  2.0  you  will  immediately get an GURU. The virus
                    scans  the Rootblock of the disk, just DD-Disk will be
                    affected,  and  checks  for  "Umy" in the Diskname. If
                    there  is  such  a  "Umy"  you will get the following 

                    "Umyj Dupe - Wash Your Ass"

                    If  there  isn`t  "Umy"  in the name your disk will be
                    infected + renamed in:

                    "Umyj Dupe - Wash Ur Ass"

                    So  the  next  time  you will see the Virus-Alert. The
                    text  aren`t  crypted  so  you  can  read  them in the
