           THE KNOWN VIRUSES ON ATARI AND THEIR SYMPTOMS


 This  is  a  systematic  description  of  all  viruses  that   are 
recognized  by  "Ultimate Virus Killer 2000".  It is  of  a  rather 
technical  nature;  in case you are interested but you  don't  know 
what  to  do with all the various phrases you get  hurled  at  you, 
please refer to books on the subject.

 Name :  Official name of the virus. When several different versions 
of one virus exist, their difference is indicated by one additional 
character - "A" for the earliest or most widely spread version, "B" 
for the next, etc.
 Type :  The description of the virus fitting the most common  virus 
classification.
 Discovery date :  The date when the virus was earliest reported  to 
be seen.  If the discoverer is known, his/her name is added between 
brackets.
 Virus  can  copy to drive(s) : This indicates to which  drives  the 
virus  can  copy itself.  "Current drive" implies  that  the  virus 
copies to the drive that is currently in use of the ones listed.
 Virus  attaches  itself  to :  Here it is  mentioned  which  system 
vector(s)  the  virus  attaches itself to.  When  indicated  to  be 
'undocumented reset-proof',  this refers to the undocumented method 
for  programs  to  become  reset-resistant  through  the  $12123456 
method.
 Disks  can  be immunized against it :  Informs of whether  a  virus 
cannot  be  immunized  against,  or whether  it  can  be  immunized 
against.  In the latter case,  it is indicated how one can immunize 
against  it.  The  format of the  immunization  method  is :  Offset 
(hexadecimal),   Byte/Word/Longword,   and  the  hexadecimal  value 
expected at that offset.
 Disks  can  be  immunized with UVK :  Indicates whether  or  not  a 
particular  virus' immunization was capable of being  including  in 
the "Ultimate Virus Killer 2000" advanced immunization method.
 What can happen :  Lists the effect that the virus is programmed to 
cause to occur.
 When  does  that  happen :  Specifies when the  above  will  happen 
(ahem).
 Reset-proof : Tells you whether or not the virus can survive a warm 
reset.
 Can  copy  to hard disk :  Tells you...er...well...this  is  pretty 
obvious, actually.
 Remarks : Here all the other things worth mentioning are summed up.

BOOTSECTOR VIRUSES

Virus #1

Name : Signum/BPL Virus A.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : November 22nd 1987 (Klaus Seligmann).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.W $6038).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What can happen : Not known.
When does that happen :  When key is found on other disks (this  has 
 never been found - yet).
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  This  is  the most widely  spread  virus;  an  approximate    
 estimate brings it to at least 1.5 million copies worldwide! It is 
 also known as the Emil 1A virus.

Virus #2

Name : Mad Virus A.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : March 26th 1988 (Eerk Hofmeester).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_rw vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.B $60).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What can happen :  Fools around with screen or bleeps with the sound 
 chip.
When does that happen :  After it makes five copies of itself,   and 
 then at every disk access.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  A  relatively  harmless virus,  therefore  also  sometimes  
 referred to as 'FUN Virus'.  This is improper,  however,  as there  
 already is a virus sometimes called 'Fun Virus',  too (the  Merlin 
 Mad  Virus,  #60).  For more remarks on the 'Mad Virus',  see  Mad 
 Virus  B (#49).  Weirdly,  the Mad Virus is also known as Emil  2A 
 Virus.

Virus #3

Name : Signum/BPL Virus B.
Discovery date : Summer 1988 (Anton Raves).
Symptoms :  Disk on which the virus is present is unreadable due  to  
 a damaged BPB.
Remark :  This  is  no  true  other virus,  but  a  virus  that  was  
 corrupted  while  active  in the system.  For more  info  see  the 
 Signum/BPL Virus A.

Virus #4

Name : ACA Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : June 29th 1988 (Little Joe).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Boot device.
Virus attaches itself to : Undocumented RESET-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.B $60 or 4.W $4143)
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What  can happen :  Track 0 is cleared (BPB,  bootsector  and  FAT).   
 Data is then irretrievably lost.
When  does  that happen :  After it has made 10  copies  of  itself.   
 This is done each time you press reset.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  This  virus is made by the ACA crew (ACA stands  for  Anti 
 Copyright Association) from Sweden.  In April 1990 it became known 
 that  this ACA crew also made a virus killer (with lotsa  graphics 
 and a scroller in the lower border).  This killer could  allegedly 
 also SPREAD viruses when you pressed a certain key combination! In 
 a 1988 issue of the German "ST Magazin" an interview with ACA  was 
 published,  in which they stated to have written (but not  spread) 
 even worse viruses.

Virus #5

Name : Freeze Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : July 12th 1988 (Carsten Frischkorn).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).

 interrupt.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.B $60).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What  can happen :  The system slows down more and  more,  until  it   
 freezes.
When does that happen :  Right from the beginning on, increasing  at  
 every access of logical sector 11 (directory).
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.

Virus #6

Name : Screen Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : July 12th 1988 (Carsten Frischkorn).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A.

 irretrievably lost).
When does that happen : If date stamp is 1987.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : Yes.
Remark :  This  virus  was  featured in  a  German  magazine  called  
 "Computer  & Technik".  The author claims he 'found it' on one  of  
 his disks. A listing was included, so that people could  reproduce 
 and adapt the virus with ease.  It writes the message  "ARRRGGGHHH 
 Diskvirus  hat  wieder  zugeschlagen" on the screen   when  it  is 
 activated. Due to the fact that it forgets to check whether or not 
 the  device is higher than "B",  it can also copy itself  to  hard 
 disk (which will most likely cause permanent damage).

Virus #8

Name : Maulwurf I Virus B (English TOS version).
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : September 3rd 1988 (Joerg Kruse).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A of B (current drive).
Virus  attaches itself to :  Reset vector,  Hdv_bpb vector  and  VBL   
 vector (this virus operates out of the VBL!).
Disks  can be immunized against it :  Yes (0.W $601C or  2.W  $001C,    
 AND must be executable).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What can happen :  Message on screen "Maulwurf I - SSG   (Subversive 
 Software Group)" and computer locks up.
When  does  that  happen :   If  original  Hdv_bpb  vector  is   re-  
 installed, or  when someone changes the Hz200 counter.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  This  virus was made by the Subversive Software  Group  in  
 Germany.  It  is also called "Caterpillar Virus",  as that is  its 
 name in English.

Virus #9

Name : Bayerische Hacker Post (BHP) Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : September 10th 1988 (Henrik Alt).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive)
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (ANY value on 0.W)
Immunizable with UVK : Yes
What can happen : Nothing. It only copies itself
When does that happen : Never (how could it?)
Reset-proof : No
Can copy to hard disk : No
Remark :  Made  by  the  Bayerische Hacker Post.  This  is  a  small  
 computer user's group in Germany that also publishes a small  club 
 magazine.  In that magazine,  the virus was said to reset-  proof, 
 and  that  it  would  'write  through  the  write-protect   notch'  
 (haha!). None if this is true. It checks the WP notch, however, in 
 a  way  that only works successfully on pre-blitter  TOS  versions 
 (i.e.  TOS  version  before  1.02).  The  Bayerische  Hacker  Post 
 address :  c/o  BASIS,  Adalbertstraže.  41b,  D-8000  Mnchen  40, 
 Germany.

Virus #10

Name : Lab-Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : September 10th 1988 (Henrik Alt).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : Screen is made entirely black.
When does that happen : After copying itself 10 times.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  Checks the write-protect status address in an illegal way, 
 and  will  therefore not work correctly on any TOS  version  above 
 1.04. This virus seems to be an adapted version of the BHP virus.

Virus #11

Name : FAT-Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector call virus.
Discovery date : May 1st 1988 (Stephen E. Schneider).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A.
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb and reset vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (executable).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What  can  happen :  Random  memory  accesses,  resulting  in  blots  
 appearing on  the screen and current programme running crashing.
When  does that happen :  After three hours,  and then at the  first 
 time  $114  is changed from its original value (this  is  the  MFP 
 Interrupt 5 vector).
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  Only works on 02-06-1986 ROMs (German TOS 1.00).  It  uses 
 time  delays  to  make it more difficult  to  detect.  This  virus 
 spreads easily and rapidly. It is bigger than  just one bootsector 
 and  also  uses the last FAT sector to write   itself  on.  It  is 
 probably  made  in Switzerland,  and is  also   called  "Swiss"-or 
 "Blot"-virus.

Virus #12

Name : Ghost Virus A.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : November 20th 1988 (Carmen Brunner).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb and resvector;  it is also  non-
 documented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : Mouse Y directions are inverted.
When  does that happen :  After copying itself 10  times.  At  every 
 further  five  copies,  the mouse  movements  are  inverted,  then 
 normalised, then inverted again, etc.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  RUMOURED  to be made by someone called Pash in  Doncaster, 
 England.  It is very widely spread (England,  Holland,  Sweden and 
 West Germany in particular).  It is also  called "Mouse" virus and 
 "Inversion" virus.

Virus #13

Name : 5th Generation Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : December 6th 1988.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A.
Virus attaches itself to : Trap #13 vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (executable).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What can happen :  Writes trash in the first 34 sectors of a   disk, 
 lethally corrupting the bootsector, FAT, and directory.
When  does  that  happen :  When the virus  has  reached  its  fifth   
 generation.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.

Virus #14

Name : OLI Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : December 10th 1988.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Boot device.
Virus  attaches itself to :  Hdv_rw and trap #14 vector;  also  non-   
 documented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can happen :  The text "OLI-VIRUS installed ." appears on  the 
 screen.  Then,  it starts slowing down the ST by hooking itself on 
 an interrupt vector.  In certain cases,  it can also corrupt  disk 
 data.
When does that happen : After having made 20 copies of itself.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.

Virus #15

Name : Maulwurf I Virus A (German TOS version).
Discovery date : January 1st 1989.
Symptoms  and remark :  See virus #8.  Only three  branch  addresses   
 are different, so as to work on German instead of English TOS.

Virus #16

Name : Kobold #2 Virus A.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : January 2nd 1989.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A (?).
Virus attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb and resvector;  Vbl_queue;  also 
 undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  The mouse UP and LEFT directions will be slightly 
 distorted, resulting in the user slowly moving it off the desk.
When does that happen : Whenever XBIOS functions are called.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  This is the toughest virus yet. Not many statements can be 
 made  about  it with certainty.  It installs itself in  memory  on 
 booting,  and only after ANOTHER reset will it install the vectors 
 mentioned  above.  Then,  it  will also print the  text  "KOBOLD#2 
 AKTIV!" (this leads to the belief that the virus is German).
 Confusingly,  there is also a "Kobold AntiVirus". This is a "virus 
 free" disk written by the German fast file copy program  "Kobold". 
 It is no true Antivirus.

Virus #17

Name : Mad Virus C.
Discovery date : January 1989 (Frits Couwenberg).
Symptoms : See virus #2.
Remark :  Some  of  the last screen fiddle/sound  routines  in  this  
 virus have been corrupted by alien code.  It will therefore  crash 
 when these routines are executed.

Virus #18

Name : Mutant Antivirus #1 A.
Discovery date : January 28th 1989.
Symptoms :  Copies  itself  to  other  disks  (except  when  they're  
 executable).  Some of the latter half of its code is corrupted  by  
 alien code, however, and may/will result in a system crash.
Remark : Read further for more info about anti-viruses.

Virus #19

Name : Goblin Virus A.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : April 3rd 1989 (Clive Duberley).
Virus  can  copy to drive(s) :  A or B (drive used  by  disk  access   
 call).
Virus  attaches  itself  to :   Hdv_bpb  and  resvector;  also  non-  
 documented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (1A2.L $27182818).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What  can  happen :  It puts the message "The Green  Goblins  Strike  
 Again" on the screen; it can also mess up the display.
When  does  that happen :  The message appears after 128  copies  of 
 itself have been made; the messing up of the display is done after 
 16 copies of itself have been made.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark : Probably made in England.

Virus #20

Name : Mutant Antivirus #1 B.
Discovery Date : March 6th 1989 (Thomas Gathen).
Symptoms :  System  crashes,  mainly.  This is just  a  gigantically  
 busted AntiVirus #1,  and really can't do anything  decent.   Most 
 probably doesn't even multiply...

Virus #21

Name : Counter Virus.
Tyoe : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery Date : May 1989.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : ?.
Disks can be immunized against it : ?.
Immunizable with UVK : ?.
What can happen : Nothing.
When does that happen : Never (would it?).
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Symptoms :  This  virus keeps a generation counter,  but doesn't  do   
 anything more.

Virus #22

Name : Help Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : September 1988.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : None.
Virus attaches itself to : ?.
Disks can be immunized against it : ?.
Immunizable with UVK : ?.
What can happen : Screen is filled with bombs.
When does that happen : At booting.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  No real virus, because it actually cannot multiply without 
 external help.  Since it resides in the bootsector,  since another 
 virus  killer  classified  it  as a  'virus'  and  since  it  does 
 something a computer user would not like,  it is still listed here 
 as a 'virus'.

Virus #23

Name : Exception Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : September 1988.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus  attaches  itself to :  Hdv_bpb  vector,  undocumented  reset-  
 resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can happen :  System crashes due to random values  written  to   
 random  memory locations.
When  does  that happen :  About 22 minutes after a vbl  routine  is 
 installed,  which  happens after accessing a  non-write  protected 
 disk in drive A or B.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark : Does not work when Hdv_bpb points at an address below $FFFF 
 (generally this is the case when a hard disk is installed). It was 
 previously  also known as Random virus,  and it only works on  TOS 
 1.00 and 1.02.

Virus #24

Name : Gauweiler Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : July 12th 1989 (Harald Wend).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb; undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : Writes "AIDS?" on the screen and zeroes track 1 of 
 a  floppy  disk (irretrievably  destroying  bootsector,  FAT,  and 
 directory).
When does that happen : After the first reset after booting it.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark : Version 3.0 of this virus (version number contained in boot 
 code)  is  supposed  to  be programmed  on  July  7th  1988  (also 
 contained  in boot code).  So it was almost exactly one  year  old 
 when it was discovered...

Virus #25

Name : Evil Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : May 23rd 1989 (Jeremy Hughes).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : Resetvector and Hdv_bpb.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.L $60380666).
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : Screen colours inverted.
When does that happen : After 100 copies of itself are made.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remarks :  Contains the text " EVIL ! - A Gift from Old Nick". It is 
 written in England.  Obviously,  the author acquired a copy  of an 
 earlier version of the "Ultimate Virus Killer" - he made sure  the 
 virus  was recognized to be an Atari system  disk!  Very  cleverly 
 done, by using the  recognition bytes somewhere in the virus code. 
 I  am glad to say  that we're now at least ONE step ahead of  this 
 guy!
 This virus is very often found in Scandinavian countries.

Virus #26

Name : P.M.S. Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : May 20th 1989 (Chris Dudley).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A.
Virus attaches itself to : XBIOS trap vector and reset vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (1B4.L $2A2A2A20).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What  can  happen :  Text "*** The Pirate Trap ***,  *  Youre  being 
 watched *, *** (C) P.M.S. 1987 ***" (sic) appears on the screen.
When  does  that happen :  At each fiftieth copy of itself  that  is   
 made.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  Contains  a  copyright message for 1987  (!).  This  virus  
 might  thus  be VERY old and it is a miracle that is  had  slipped  
 through  the  attention  of ALL virus  killers  thus  far.  It  is  
 thought  to  be made by a software vendor to prevent  people  from  
 copying software in his shop.  Due to obvious reasons,  it is also 
 called "Pirate Trap Virus".
 This virus patched the XBIOS vector in such an effective way that, 
 once the virus is in memory,  it even patches bootsector reads  to 
 hide its presence.  It copies itself at each use of Floprd  (XBIOS 
 8)!

Virus #27

Name : Ghost Virus B.
Discovery date : June 15th 1989 (R. de Groen).
Symptoms :  See  Virus  #12  (Ghost Virus).  This virus  has  a  few   
 damaged bytes and will therefore crash easily.

Virus #28

Name : Arnold/Rambo Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : November 1989.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.B $60).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What can happen : Nothing.
When does that happen : After five copies were made.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  This  virus was actually designed  to have  precisely  the 
 same  effects as the Mad virus,  but due to a wrong branch  and  a 
 non-working counter this does not work.

Virus #29

Name : Monitor Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : November 1989.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B.
Virus attaches itself to : ?.
Disks can be immunized against it : ?.
What can happen : Random lines are put on the screen.
When does that happen : ?.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Symptoms :  Some  random  lines are put on  the  screen,  which  are 
 probably meant to  hint at a busted monitor. Of course, this virus 
 doesn't harm the monitor at all.

Virus #30

Name : Anti-ACA Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : December 28th 1989.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : GEMDOS trap vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.W $601C).
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can happen :  Text "GREETINGS TO ACA,  THE FIRST GROUP  TO  BE 
 GREETED  IN A VIRUS!  (AND THEY ARE THE GUYS WHO MADE THE  1ST  ST 
 VIRUS" on screen, followed by the computer crashing.
When does that happen : After four copies of itself are made.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remarks : This virus was written in Norway by someone called himself 
 The  Lazy Lion (as were viruses  31-36!).  Actually,  unlike  this 
 virus  claims,  the first virus on the ST was not that of the  ACA 
 (but who cares).
 All  these  viruses patch the GEMDOS trap  vector,  and  will  get 
 active and/or copy themselves at any Fopen or Fsfirst GEMDOS call.

Virus #31

Name : Chopin Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : December 28th 1989.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A.
Virus attaches itself to : GEMDOS trap vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can  happen :  Music  of Chopin's Death  March  start  playing 
 endlessly and system freezes to a halt. At each music end, it also 
 prints the message "FUCK! YOU'VE GOT A VIRUS!" on the screen.
When does that happen : After 26 copies of itself are made.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.

Virus #32

Name : Cookie Monster Virus A.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.

 screen,  and then waits for the user to type COOKIE.  After having 
 done  this,  it will enable the user to continue whatever  he  was 
 doing. After each 20 further copies, it appears again.
When does that happen : After 30 copies of itself are made.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.

Remark :  The  boot code also includes the address of a  well  known 
 member of the ST society, who was supposed to be blackmailed using 
 this virus (but who did NOT write it!).

Virus #35

Name : Puke Virus B.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : December 28th 1989.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : XBIOS trap vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (19E.L $70756B65).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What can happen : Track 1 gets the memory contents of $78000 (screen 
 memory  on  half  meg  machines)  written  on  it   (irretrievably 
 corrupting bootsector, FAT and directory sectors).
When  does that happen :  After making five copies  of  itself,  and   
 then after each second copy.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark : See virus #34.

When does that happen :  After four copies of itself are made,   and 
 then after each second copy.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  Due to a small bug, it seems to write only non- executable 
 copies of itself?

Virus #37

Name : Mutant Antivirus #4.
Discovery date : Autumn 1989.
Symptoms :  As  this is an anti-virus with almost 50 percent of  its 
 code destroyed, it probably only crashes the system on boot-up.

Virus #38

Name : G-DATA Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : May 5th 1990.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.B $60).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What can happen : Nothing.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  This  virus was not written by G-Data (which is  a  German 
 company that has also made a virus killer),  but owes its name  to 
 the fact that it contains the message "ANTI-VIREN KIT 3KEIN  VIRUS 
 IM  BOOTSECTOR"  (translation :  "ANTI-VIREN KIT 3NO VIRUS  IN  THE 
 BOOTSECTOR"), suggesting that it is a disk immunized by the G-Data 
 virus  killer (which,  of course,  it isn't).  It's based  on  the 
 Exception Virus.
 It's also called "G-DATA Laxy Virus".

Virus #39

Name : Media Change Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector viruses.
Discovery date : October 27th 1989.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : All boot devices.

Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What can happen : Text turns to screen colour.
When does that happen : Every fifth copy.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : Yes.
Remark :  Since  it  does not check for drives higher  than  B,  and  
 since it uses the BIOS Rwabs call,  it can also copy to hard  disk 
 when you have booted from that!

Virus #40

Name : Ghost Virus C.
Discovery date : March 9th 1990.
Remark : A version of the original Ghost Virus in which three  bytes 
 have been corrupted, causing the branch to be (non-fatally) misled 
 and the mouse reversion routine to malfunction.  It copies without 
 any problems, though, and is indeed reset-proof.

Virus #41

Name : Bat Virus.
Type :  Non-executable reset-proof memory-resident bootsector   call 
 virus.
Discovery date : March 17th 1990 (George Woodside).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current drive.
Virus  attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb vector,  timer  vectors,  reset   
 vector. Also undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  Last sectors of directory can be destroyed if the 
 directory is very long.  The mouse pointer will turn into a batman 
 logo.
When  does that happen :  The directory bit can happen each time  it 
 copies itself; the mouse pointer will change after one hour.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : ?.
Remark : Written by some kid for a French journalist. He's an author 
 who has e.g.  written articles about viruses,  and he has probably 
 done  this virus to check how fast they can multiply and to  check 
 how good virus killers are.  Previously, this virus was considered 
 to  be 100% safe by ALL virus killers,  as the bootsector  is  NOT 
 executable  - yet it is a bootsector virus!  It is really  a  very 
 ingenious viruses, but the "Ultimate Virus Killer" is ahead of its 
 prey!

Virus #42

Name : Grim Reaper Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : May 9th 1990 (John).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Drive A only.
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.W $6A38, 3A.W $41FA).
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  De-installs itself,  screws up the screen, prints 
 garbage  on the screen and writes to contents of memory at  $78000 
 (screen address on half megabyte machines) to the first 20 sectors 
 of a disk, lethally corrupting bootsector, FAT and directory.
When does that happen : After 47 copies of itself are made.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  A  nasty one,  this virus.  Its installation structure  is 
 identical  with  George Woodside's Antivirus  "VKill  Guard".  The 
 bootsector also contains the text " -= The Jumper strikes again =- 
 Pirates, the grim reaper draws near  ".

Virus #43

Name : Megacunt V2.0 virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : December 1989 (Dave Moss).
Virus can copy to drive(s) :  Current drive (floppy only), and  only 
 to immunized disks.
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can  happen :  Acid-colours will be on the  background  screen   
 colour, done by the level 4 interrupt.
When does that happen : After 20 copies of itself are made.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  Written  by a chap calling himself  Alcoholica,  and  only  
 copies  to immunized disks (!crikey!).  Several other versions  of 
 this virus are believed to exist, but none have been sighted.

Virus #44

Name : Horror Virus.
Type :  Non-executable reset-proof memory-resident bootsector   call 
 virus.
Discovery date : August 23rd 1990.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Drive A.
Virus  attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb vector,  timer C  vector.  Also   
 undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : Screen will switch colours, sound will be  heard.
When  does  that happen :  At a certain time  after  copying  itself   
 five times.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  Written  by  a  member of ULM  from  Luxemburg,  for  test 
 purposes. He did this early spring 1990. It has never been spread, 
 but he gave it to me 'just in case'.  Previously,  this virus  was 
 considered to be 100% safe by ALL virus killers, as the bootsector 
 is  NOT  executable - yet it is a bootsector  virus  (see  'Batman 
 Virus')!

Virus #45

Name : DJA Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : Summer 1990.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current drive.
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.W $6038).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What  can  happen :  Message  will be displayed on  screen  ("Du  ar 
 smetted  av  DJA viruset  Generatio....(generation  number)")  and 
 system will lock up.
When does that happen : After a fourth disk is found with the  virus 
 on  it  (or  any disk starting with $6038  -  including  immunized 
 ones!).
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : Yes.
Remark :  Written in Norway or Denmark,  as the text it prints means 
 "You are infected by the DJA virus" in one of these languages).  A 
 good  thing  is  that it does not copy to immunized  disks  -  but 
 unfortunately  these immunized disks DO trigger the  'destruction' 
 routine!

Virus #46

Name : TOI Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : November 10th 1990 (George Woodside).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current drive.
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb and resvector; it is also    non-
 documented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can happen :  Inverts the vertical mouse movements (just  like 
 the  "Ghost" virus which is it's previrus).  After that,  it  also 
 toggles  the  bits  of a random memory  location  (this  leads  to 
 unpredictable crashes and small things going wrong).
When does that happen : After five copies of itself have been  made.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark : An  adapted version of the "Ghost" virus.  The  name  comes 
 from the TOI programming group in Denver,  Colorado,  USA, who are 
 reported to be responsible for this one.

Virus #47

Name : Flying Chimp Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : December 15th 1990 (Les Neidig).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Drive A.
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  Message will be displayed on screen ("Zapped   by 
 Waldo the Flying Chimp!").
When does that happen : After it has multiplied itself five   times, 
 or when it has had 20 bootsector accesses.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark : Thought to have been written in the USA. Also known as  the 
 "Waldo Virus".

Virus #48

Name : Reset Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : Summer 1988 (Volker S”hnitz).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : ?.
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb, Hdv_rw and Hdv_mediach  vectors.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : It writes a message "Ihr Rechner hat Aids" (German 
 for  "Your computer has AIDS") on the screen and then freezes  the 
 system.
When does that happen : Three hours after booting.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark : Strangely  enough,  this  virus will not copy  itself  when 
 you've  got a cartridge installed with the word "Dent" at  address 
 $FA0066.

Virus #49

Name : MAD Virus B.
Discovery date : December 1987 (Volker S”hnitz).
Symptoms : See virus #2.
Remark : Published  in a magazine called "Atari  Spezial"  (German), 
 and  therefore  also known under the name "Atari  Spezial  Virus". 
 This is the original MAD virus,  which is exactly the same as  MAD 
 virus A (which was spread the most) except for the offset of  most 
 code.  It  was  written by J.  Schuppener,  and it  was  published 
 towards  the end of the year 1987 in the mentioned  magazine.  The 
 magazine  now seems to be defunct,  but the publisher used  to  be 
 CAV-GmbH, Hežstraže 90, D-8000 Mnchen, Germany.

Virus #50

Name : Ghost Virus D.
Discovery date : February 17th 1990.
Symptoms :  See  Virus  #12  (Ghost Virus).  This virus  has  a  few   
 damaged bytes and will not work properly - may even crash.

Virus #51

Name : Ghost Virus E.
Discovery date : April 1991.
Symptoms :  Principally it's the same as the Ghost Virus (#12),  but 
 the  symptoms are different.  It does something with the  vertical 
 blank queue and leaves the mouse alone.  Unfortunately the precise 
 symptoms  are unknown as the copies of this virus that were  found 
 were both damaged.

Virus #52

Name : Ghost virus F.
Discovery date : April 1991.
Symptoms : See virus #12 (Ghost Virus), Unfortunately, there is some 
 corrupted  code in the virus copy routine so that it can  cause  a 
 disk to be corrupted (the bootsector can be written  wrongly,  not 
 corrupting the actual data but making it inaccessible).

Virus #53

Name : Megaguru & Argo 2 Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : June 22nd 1991 (Paolo Munarin).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  At booting,  writes the text "* MEGAGURU & ARGO 2 
 001  * ANTEPRIME ATARI E AMIGA PRESENTANO  :" on the  screen.  When 
 things go 'wrong' the screen inverts and a bleep sounds.
When does that happen :  At each disk with an executable  bootsector 
 that is accessed - with the exception of disks that have the virus 
 on them.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  This  virus is from Italy.  It was found on a  disk  which 
 contained a text file from a hacker called Megaguru,  who  (quote) 
 "would like to swap Amiga and ST software".  Even his phone number 
 was on it!

Virus #54

Name : Ghost virus G.
Discovery date : June 1991 (Kai Holst).
Symptoms :  See virus #12 (Ghost Virus). This seems to be an adapted 
 version  of  the Ghost Virus,  and the pre-virus  to  most  recent 
 mutant Ghost Viruses (of which there are rather an absurd lot).

Virus #55

Name : Finland Virus.
Type : Memory-resident reset-proof bootsector virus.
Discovery date : Early July 1991 (Steffen Fischer).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A.
Virus  attaches  itself  to :   Hdv_bpb  vector,   resvector.   Also   
 undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (executable).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What can happen :  Fiddling with the screen colours (this comes down 
 to the green and white colours of the desktop being reversed  when 
 in colour mode).
When does that happen : After is has done each 12th copy of  itself. 
 The virus only copies to non-executable disks, or executable disks 
 that have viral symptoms (i.e.  other viruses and itself) or  that 
 have the word 'Boot' contained at hexadecimal offset $82 (any disk 
 'protected'  by  the boot program of the German  PD  virus  killer 
 "Sagrotan" has the word 'Boot' at this offset!).
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark : This  virus was coded by a chap called  Toubab,  on  August 
 30th 1990. It got sent to me by two people almost at the same time 
 after  the  virus  was almost  one  year  old!  Both  occurrences, 
 however,  were in Scandinavia (i.e. disks from Finland and Norway) 
 so this leads me to believe it was written in Scandinavia.  It was 
 a  real  pain  in the posterior,  as it started  with  a  longword 
 '00000000'  value,  that lead the "Ultimate Virus Killer"  to  not 
 finding it suspect!

Virus #56

Name : Ghost virus H.
Discovery date : August 5th 1991 (Harald Uenzelmann).
Symptoms :  See virus #12 (Ghost Virus). This is principally exactly 
 the same as the standard Ghost Virus, but someone apparently found 
 it necessary to change the Branch into BLS instead of BRA -  which 
 has the same result when executed but which effectively caused  it 
 not to be recognized.

Virus #57

Name : Signum Virus C.
Discovery date : September 25th 1991 (Darren Laidler).
Symptoms :  See virus #1 (Signum Virus A).  This is exactly the same 
 with regard to symptoms and the way it works.  The only reason why 
 it  is  basically different is that someone (probably  someone  in 
 England)  optimized it a bit,  and some machine code  instructions 
 have been replaced by others.

Virus #58

Name : Joe Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : November 25th 1991 (ACN).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.W $4E71).
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  When it finds itself with a specific value in the 
 fourth  and fifth byte,  it will execute  itself  again,  probably 
 cluttering up the system.
When does that happen :  When it finds itself again,  and then every 
 second time.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  As  this virus has no particular characteristics,  it  was 
 called  "Joe Virus" as I was listening to Jimi Hendrix' "Hey  Joe" 
 when I disassembled it.

Virus #59

Name : Directory Waster Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : Unknown (Michael Schussler).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus  attaches  itself  to :   Hdv_bpb  vector,   resvector;   also   
 undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can happen :  First twenty tracks of your disk  get  destroyed  
 (both  side  0  and side 1!) When does  that  happen :  After  each  
 twentieth copy it made of itself.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark : The name is quite improper,  as it destroys about 25% of  a 
 disk  and  not just the  directory.  Initially,  this  virus  only 
 installs  itself  on the standard reset vector.  After  the  first 
 reset,  it bends the hdv_bpb vector and becomes reset-resistant in 
 the undocumented way.

Virus #60

Name : Merlin's Mad Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector programme.
Discovery date : Unknown (Mike Mee).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Not at all.
Virus attaches itself to : Nowhere.
Disks can be immunized against it : No need to immunize.
Immunizable with UVK : Not applicable.
What can happen :  See the Mad Virus - it does the same things  with 
 the screen and/or makes a sound.
When  does that happen :  When booting with a disk  containing  this   
 'virus'.
Reset-proof : Not applicable (i.e. "no").
Can copy to hard disk : Not applicable.
Remark : This is no virus at all, but it has been classified here as 
 Mike  Mee  sent  it  to me who classifies it as  a  virus  in  his 
 "Professional  Virus Killer" programme.  It was written by  Merlin 
 the  Welsh  Wizard,  and it's TOTALLY HARMLESS.  It can  not  copy 
 itself,  and  only  fiddles  around with the screen  in  the  same 
 fashion as the "MAD Virus" after which it is called.

Virus #61

Name : Wolf Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : February 4th 1991 (Carsten Frischkorn).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to : BIOS vector.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.W $EB34).
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  RAM memory amount is halved (this does not  imply 
 you  actually LOSE RAM,  it just means that it makes the  computer 
 THINK it has less RAM!).
When does that happen : After the eighth generation is found.
Reset-proof : No.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  A rather nasty virus. For starters, it starts off with the 
 bytes  you'd  normally find on an  MS-DOS  disk,  i.e.  all  virus 
 killers think it's an MS-DOS bootsector. Second, it fools the user 
 by  putting the message "Kein Virus im bootsector!" on the  screen 
 at booting.  This is the boot message of the virus-free bootsector 
 of the German virus killer "Sagrotan". It de-installs itself after 
 three infections (i.e.  your computer will think you've got  1/8th 
 of your actual amount of RAM memory by then!).

Virus #62

Name : Ghost virus I.
Discovery date : October 5th 1991 (Frank Jonkers).
Symptoms : See virus #12 (Ghost Virus), Unfortunately, there is some 
 corrupted  code in the virus copy routine so that it can  cause  a 
 disk to be corrupted (the bootsector can be written  wrongly,  not 
 corrupting the actual data but making it inaccessible).

Virus #63

Name : Menace Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector call virus.
Discovery date : Spring 1992 (David of H-Street).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus  attaches  itself  to :   Xbios  vector,  Hdv_bpb  vector  and  
 interrupt level 4 interrupt; also undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can  happen :  Overwrites the bootsector of your  floppy  disk   
 with a message in an Elfish language (Tolkien).
When does that happen : After having made ten copies ot itself.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  This virus uses TWO sectors on disk, sector 1 and 10. It's 
 rather  cleverly written and thought to come from  Malta.  Several 
 versions are believed to exist.

Virus #64

Name : Ashton Nirvana Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : Spring 1992 (David of H-Street).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus  attaches  itself  to :   Hdv_bpb  vector;  also  undocumented   
 reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : Random sectors will be read from the current drive 
 (including hard disk!) and written back with the word "ASHTON"  in 
 it.  This obviously corrupts your media, at one sector per Hdv_bpb 
 use.
When does that happen :  Each time a floppy/hard disk is read   from 
 or written to.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  Perhaps  this virus was written by the same person as  the 
 "Menace" virus.  It's a nasty one as it can corrupt hard disks  as 
 well!

Virus #65

Name : Lietuva Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : Spring 1992 (Paragraph Headquarters).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus   attaches  itself   to :   Vbl   queue,   resetvector;   also   
 undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : Bootsector will be zeroed.
When does that happen :  After the first eight copies of itself  are 
 made, and every six copies afterwards. A copy is made every time a 
 disk's bootsector is read/written.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  Written by a chap in the former U.S.S.R.  who now lives in 
 Lithuania. It does not bend any actual system variable which makes 
 it rather revolutionary.

Virus #66

Name : Signum Virus D.
Discovery date : March 25th 1992 (Volker S”hnitz).
Remark :  This  is  an optimized version of the  original  Signum  A 
 virus,  which  is also somewhat smaller in size.  It is no  longer 
 immunizable with the standard Signum immunization (0.W $6038)  but 
 instead requires to be immunized with 2.W $07C4.  This effectively 
 makes  it  impossible  to immunize it  with  the  "Ultimate  Virus 
 Killer"...

Virus #67

Name : Zorro Virus A.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : June 1992 (P. van Zanten)
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus  attaches itself to :  Hdv_rw,  Hdv_bpb,  resvector  and  also 
 undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : System will lock itself.
When does that happen : After a specific number of copies are made.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  A very complex virus that evaded virus killers  previously 
 by  being recognized as an MS-DOS bootsector.  It's heavily  coded 
 and  installs itself in memory in a very complex way.  On  top  of 
 that it seems capable of installing differently coded versions  of 
 itself so that per definition each copy of this virus differs from 
 all  other copies of it.  This was apparently written as an  anti-
 virus. The author is Dutch.

Virus #68

Name : Zoch Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : December 1992.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes (0.L $5A4F4348, "ZOCH").
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  Text on screen (The Night Force Virus Breaker  by 
 Zoch), and copies itself.
When  does that happen :  Text appears on  installation.  It  copies 
 itself to all disk it is not on already.
Resetproof : No.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  To  all  intent and purpose this virus was written  as  an 
 antivirus.  Unfortunately it copies itself across ALL  bootsectors 
 it  finds  with the exception of ones it  finds  itself  on.  This 
 means that it will destroy any previous program in the bootsector, 
 whether needed or virus!

Virus #69

Name : Macumba 3.3 Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : February 1993 (Chris Brookes).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb, undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : The system freezes totally and abruptly.
When does that happen :  After a specific number of copies have been 
 made of itself (42 copies).
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark : This virus also codes itself and also fakes to be an MS-DOS 
 disk  (just like the Zorro Virus).  Quite naughty.  Macumba  (like 
 Zorro), was conceived as an anti-virus. The author is Dutch.

Virus #70

Name : Zorro Virus B.
Discovery date : February 17th 1993 (Kenneth Elofsson)
Remark :   Virtually  identical  to  Zorro  Virus  A,  so  refer  to 
 information given there. Only a few bytes have been changed.

Virus #71

Name : Beilstein Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector call virus.
Discovery date : March 16th 1993 (Volker S”hnitz).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb,  Vbl_queue,  Hdv_rw,  Hdv_boot, 
 Gemdos,  Xbios,  regularly reset-resistant AND undocumented reset-
 resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can happen,  and when :  1) It can delete specific files  when 
 these are loaded by the user. These files are 'SAGROTAN', 'MDISK', 
 'FCOPYIII',   'FCOPY3??',   'DISKUS',  'DISKDEMO',  'TED_???'  and 
 'G_COPY', 2) It can clear partition "C" of your hard disk when the 
 virus  in memory discovers that you are trying to trace it  (trace 
 bit set,  for example in a debugger),  3) It can create garbage on 
 your screen,  4) Keyboard,  mouse and joystick can be disabled, 5) 
 Mouse movements can be inverted (like with the "Ghost Virus"),  6) 
 Printer output can be corrupted, 7) Modem output can be corrupted, 
 8) A bomb error can be created,  9) The system can be frozen until 
 you  enter the password "Apokalypse",  10) Memory can be  cleared, 
 followed  by a reset,  11) The first hundred sectors of  a  floppy 
 disk  can be cleared,  and 12) It can delete a folder.  These  are 
 quite an amount of things that can go wrong!
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remarks :  This virus also codes itself and also fakes to be an  MS-
 DOS  disk (just like the Zorro Virus).  On top of that it uses  an 
 ingenious  system  where bits of its code are swapped  around  and 
 where  different bootsector offsets are used to make things  extra 
 difficult.  Even  when  not  yet coded,  there  are  at  least  10 
 different  versions that this virus can generate of  itself.  With 
 coding added,  over 650,000 versions of this virus can exist.  But 
 that's not everything :  The bootsector that was on the disk before 
 it got infected (e.g.  a virus free disk) is stored somewhere else 
 and executed after the virus installs itself.  This means that the 
 message  "this is a virus free disk" will STILL appear even  after 
 the disk has been infected! It is a very complex virus that, apart 
 from  the  bootsector,  uses four other sectors on disk  that  are 
 marked  BAD in the FAT to make sure they're not  overwritten.  The 
 use  of  these four extra sectors enable the virus  to  be  bigger 
 (hence the many different destruction routines) and also allow  it 
 to buffer the original bootsector previously present on the  disk. 
 The  last  naughty bit about this virus is  that,  when  it  bends 
 system  variables,  it supplies regular XBRA ID codes  of  popular 
 harmless  applications to itself (for example  HABO,  VREP,  VIRA, 
 CB2K,  SBTS  and  WINZ).  The "Ultimate  Virus  Killer"  correctly 
 recognizes it anyway!
 This is without a doubt the most nasty virus yet.  It was  written 
 by  a student from Beilstein,  a town in South Germany (hence  its 
 name).  It  has  only  been  supplied  to  specific  virus  killer 
 programmers and has so far not actually been spread as such. Let's 
 hope it will stay that way!

Virus #72

Name : Temporary Madness Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : March 16th 1993 (Volker S”hnitz).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb, undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen,  and when :  Every 65536 vertical blanks (on colour 
 that means about every 22 minutes) the mouse movement is  inverted 
 for about 10 seconds.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  In Germany,  this virus is known as the "Mouse Coordinate" 
 virus.

Virus #73

Name : Darkness Virus A (Nightmare of Brooklyn #2 'Darkness').
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : July 17th 1993 (Piotr Kowalczyk).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb,  undocumented  reset-resistant, 
 resvector, vbl_queue.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  It can write garbage on the first 9 sectors of  a 
 random  track between 1 and 79.  The first of those  sectors  will 
 then contain the text between quotes mentioned above with  'Name'. 
 Additionally, the virus can screen black.
When does that happen : The disk track garbage writing happens every 
 other  8 copies that it writes of itself.  The  screen  blackening 
 happens every 32768 vertical blanks (i.e.  after about 11  minutes 
 on colour monitors, about 7.5 minutes on monochrome).
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  First discovered in Poland.  This virus uses an  intricate 
 coding  method  which,  like other recent viruses,  allows  it  to 
 create hundreds of differently recognizable versions of itself.

Virus #74

Name : Small Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : Autumn 1993 (Chris Brookes).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  Nothing harmful actually.  It has no  destruction 
 routine nor a trigger routine.
When does that happen : Never.
Resetproof : No.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  Named after the fact that it is very small, less than half 
 the bootsector size. Only copies itself. Nothing else.

Virus #75

Name : Ghost Virus J.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : Autumn 1993 (ORQ Computer Group).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb and resvector;  it is also  non-
 documented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can  happen :  Most  likely nothing.  It is  changed  (or  has 
 mutated)  so that it manipulated a wrong memory value.  The  mouse 
 pointer Y direction is NOT inverted.
When does that happen : After copying itself 10 times.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  It is almost identical to "Ghost Virus A",  much more than 
 the other variants. It was discovered in Australia, and also known 
 as "Silent Virus".

Virus #76

Name : Zorro Virus C.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : November 2nd 1993 (Piotr Kowalczyk).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus  attaches itself to :  Hdv_rw,  Hdv_bpb,  resvector  and  also 
 undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : System will lock itself.
When does that happen : After a specific number of copies are made.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  Although it does almost exactly the same as Zorro Virus A, 
 it is much more different from it than Zorro Virus B. For starters 
 all its individual routines are interchanged,  causing the uncoded 
 virus start to be quite different too.  It also installs itself on 
 a different location in memory.  This virus version may have  been 
 done in Poland.  It also goes by the name of "Wredniak" (which  is 
 Polish for "Nasty Virus").

Virus #77

Name : Lucky Lady 1.02 Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : February 1994.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Floppy drive A only.
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb and vbl queue.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  A message ("Lady Luck rules forever!") is printed 
 continuously on the screen,  locking your system.  A reset is  the 
 only way out.
When does that happen : After about an hour (on monochrome 70 Hz) or 
 an hour and fifteen minutes (colour 50 Hz).
Resetproof : No.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  Coded by a female programmer who goes by the name of  Lady 
 Luck  of  Sector  MP Inc.  from  Ljubljana,  Slovenia  (in  former 
 Yugoslavia). She has initiated some sort of bizarre 'war', and has 
 vowed  to  write  many more viruses to test  both  her  talent  at 
 writing them and my talents at killing them.  She sends her latest 
 creations  to me by registered mail without specification  of  the 
 sender.  Nothing  more  is known about her,  other than  that  she 
 studies at Ljubljana University.  This virus is actually  prettily 
 clumsily  written,  and used to get a VPF of 220% because it  used 
 three separate instances of "rwabs",  among other things.  I  have 
 mixed feelings about all this,  and all I can say is that I'd love 
 to kill her creations softly.

Virus #78

Name : Lucky Lady 4.12 Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector call virus.
Discovery date : March 1994.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Floppy drive A only.
Virus attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb, resvector, vbl_queue.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : 1) It puts message "Lucky Lady forbids you to load 
 the UVK!" on screen, then erases  "UVK_x_x.PRG" files from current  
 drive  when you try  to load the "Ultimate Virus Killer" 2) Mouse  
 cursor  is  changed from TOS arrow  to Lucky Lady's logo  (LL)  3) 
 Screws up the screen 4) Logical clusters 351 & 352 are  overwriten  
 and  marked as 'bad' in the FAT (Every cluster entry after 351  is 
 thus  a "floating entry" if there was a file (data  lost)  present 
 before on a disk).
When does that happen :  Message and UVK file erasing happens  every 
 time you want to load  the "Ultimate Virus Killer".  Mouse  cursor  
 is   changed  after approximately 35 minutes on monocrome  (a  bit 
 longer on colour).   Clusters  351 & 352  are lost during  cloning 
 i.e. during every drive A access.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  Like  "Lucky Lady 1.02",  this virus is written by a  girl 
 from  Slovenia  as part of her bizarre 'war' (see  previous  virus 
 remarks). It's not called "Luckly Lady B" and the other one "Lucky 
 Lady  A" because the viruses are totally different  despite  their 
 similar name.  This virus is much more complex and also a lot more 
 dangerous.  It seems only to work on English versions of TOS 1.00, 
 where  the  file name of the file currently being loaded is  at  a 
 specific location.
 News is that this Sector MP Inc.  has set up a virus coding school 
 in former Yugoslavia. Things are beginning to get out of hand.

Virus #79

Name : Anaconda Virus A.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : February 1994.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb, resvector and also  undocumented 
 reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  The virus seems to be designed to print a message 
 on the screen,  "MAUI viens de vous niquer" (this means  something 
 like "MAUI has just made fun of you"). However, there is reason to 
 believe it will in fact get fed a bogus text address and will thus 
 print garbage instead.
When  does  that happen :  After 10 successful copies  are  made  of 
 itself, and after that after every 5 copies.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  Virus  is located at $140,  but after the first  reset  it 
 relocates to phystop-$8200. It is believed to have been written by 
 the Replicants,  a cracking group from France,  but this is in  no 
 way certain. The text seems to indicate a French origin anyway.

Virus #80

Name : Lucky Lady Virus 1.03.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : April 1994.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A.
Virus attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb,  undocumented  reset-resistant, 
 resvector, vbl_queue.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : The message "Lucky Lady's your empress" appears on 
 screen after which your system locks up.
When does that happen : Virus  activates itself  after approximately 
 80-110 seconds;  the system will lock itself somewhere between  45 
 and 65 minutes.
Reset-proof : Yes.
Can copy to hard disk : No.
Remark :  Like the other viruses of a similar name, this was written 
 by  a  Slovenian  girl calling herself  Lucky  Lady.  It  cleverly 
 disguises  itself  as an "ST Format Cover Disk" - the virus  is  a 
 personal  revenge  against writer Clive Parker -  and  is  Falcon-
 compatible.

Virus #81

Name : Anaconda Virus B.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : Spring 1994.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb, resvector and also  undocumented 
 reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can  happen :  The  virus prints the text  "AKO-PADS"  on  the 
 screen.  Also,  the virus will corrupt the disks it copies  itself 
 to.
When  does  that happen :  After 10 successful copies  are  made  of 
 itself, and after that after every 5 copies.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  This  is either an adapted version of Anaconda A,  or  the 
 other way around.  There is no way to proof either.  The virus  is 
 also known as "Ako Pads" virus.

Virus #82

Name : Pashley Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : December 4th 1993.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  Screen flashing red.  The virus will copy  itself 
 across all non-executable bootsectors.
When does that happen : The flashing happens each time you boot with 
 an infected disk in the boot drive.
Resetproof : No.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  Contains  the  texts  "VIRUS KILLED  BY  S.C.PASHLEY"  and 
 "ENGLAND" which are never printed on the screen.  Hence the  virus 
 name.  Virus  bootsectors are actually left alone by the  supposed 
 anti-virus as they are normally executable.  Maybe this virus  was 
 written  by S.C.Pashley,  but probably not.  It is *not* an  anti-
 virus because it copies itself and does nothing against viruses as 
 such.

Virus #83

Name : Gotcha Xeno Virus.
Type : Reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : July 4th 1994 (Pawel Parys).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus   attaches   itself   to :   Hdv_bpb,   resvector   and   also   
 undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : Yes ($1E.L $263C0000).
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  The virus will write garbage,  headed by the text 
 "GOTCHA!" on random tracks (1-64) and sector (0-7),  thus damaging 
 data.
When  does  that happen :  After 10 successful copies  are  made  of   
 itself, and after that after every 5 copies.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  It  is unclear whether this is actually the  Pre-Virus  of 
 Anaconda, or perhaps just another virus developed from it. Some of 
 its characteristic (such as the fact that it fully works and  that 
 it can principally be immunized against) warrant classifying it as 
 a separate virus.
 The  reason that it can not be immunized against by the  "Ultimate 
 Virus Killer" despite location $1E not being occupied by any other 
 bits  of  the  immunization  scheme  is  that,   officially  (i.e. 
 according  to Atari's standards),  bootsector programs should  not 
 start  prior  to offset $3A.  To rule  out  possible  problems,  I 
 decided to avoid it altogether.

Virus #84

Name : UVD Virus.
Type : Potentially reset-proof memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : October 1994.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb *or* hdv_mediach.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  The screen will display a text.  Depending on its 
 configuration it can lock up the system afterwards.
When  does  that happen :  After about 45 (monochrome 70 Hz)  to  65 
 (colour 50 Hz) minutes.
Resetproof : Depends on its configuration.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark : This  is  a series of viruses that can be  created  by  the 
 "Ultimate  Virus  Designer",  a  program written  by  the  Slovene 
 Stonewashing Organisation. It claims almost 200 different versions 
 of this can be made,  depending on various configurable parameters 
 such as "offset",  "resetproof yes/no", "hide behind MS-DOS header 
 yes/no",  "location in memory", "attach to hdv_bpb or hdv_mediach" 
 as   well  as  two  different  'destruction'  routines   or   'no' 
 destruction routine. All these versions can be recognized.

Virus #85

Name : Tiny Virus.
Type : Memory-resident bootsector virus.
Discovery date : September 1994.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Floppy drive A only.
Virus attaches itself to : Hdv_bpb and vbl_queue
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen : Nothing. This virus just copies itself.
When does that happen : Well...never.
Resetproof : No.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  This is the smallest virus so far, occupying only 34% of a 
 bootsector. It was written by Lucky Lady.

Virus #86

Name : Kobold #2 Virus B.
Type : Memory-resident reset-proof bootsector virus.
Discovery date : October 10th 1994 (Dejan Orehek).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A (?).
Virus attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb and resvector,  vbl_queue;  also 
 undocumented reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can  happen :  The message "I LOVE JADRANKA"  appears  on  the 
 screen.
When does that happen : Upon installation.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  This is an adapted version of the Kobold #2  Virus,  which 
 will  henceforth be known as Kobold #2 Virus  A.  The  destruction 
 routine  was  removed so all this virus does it  copy  itself  and 
 display  that  message at startup.  The text  message  is  encoded 
 within  the virus with a hexadecimal decoding value of  $21111968, 
 which would lead to thinking that November 21st 1968 is the  birth 
 date of either the author of Kobold #2 Virus B or this  mysterious 
 girl, Jadranka.
 This  virus is probably of Balkan origin,  and might be as old  as 
 from 1991.

Virus #87

Name : Signum Virus E.
Discovery date : September 19th 1994 (Mike Holmes).
Remark : This is a corrupt version of the original, with a different 
 branch  offset and faulty startup code,  most likely leading to  a 
 system crash upon installation. It cannot multiply effectively.

Virus #88

Name : Macumba 5.2 Virus.
Type : Memory-resident reset-proof bootsector virus.
Discovery date : August 1994.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : A or B (current drive).
Virus   attaches  itself  to :   Hdv_bpb  and  undocumented   reset-
 resistant.
Disks  can  be  immunized  against  it :   Yes  (executable  or  0.L 
 $EB909047).
Immunizable with UVK : Yes.
What can happen : This is not exactly known. Probably a crash?
When does that happen : Probably not too long after a reset.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  To my shock,  I ran across a collection of "Macumba Virus" 
 installation  and  recognition files,  leading  to  the  following 
 conclusions.  First  of  all,  it's written by  someone  from  the 
 Netherlands. Second, there are at least *19* different versions of 
 virus (0.9,  0.9a,  1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 3.1 TT, 3.2 TT, 3.3 TT, 3.4 TT, 
 3.5 TT,  3.6 TT,  3.7 TT,  3.8 TT,  3.9 TT,  4.0 TT,  4.0b TT, 5.0 
 Falcon  and  5.2 Falcon).  It seems we are dealing  with  some  TT 
 compatible and Falcon compatible viruses here.  Viruses 0.9,  0.9a 
 and 1.0 have bugs in them, so might not work/multiply properly.
 I  am currently trying hard to get my hands on the  versions  that 
 are not yet recognised by the "Ultimate Virus Killer" (i.e. all of 
 them with the exception of 3.3 TT and 5.2 Falcon).

Virus #89

Name : Vaccin-Gillus Virus.
Type : Memory-resident reset-proof bootsector virus.
Discovery date : August 18th 1994 (Mike Holmes).
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus  attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb,  resvector,  and  undocumented 
 reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What  can  happen :  Prints the text "VACCIN-GILLUS" on  the  screen 
 whilst showing wobbly colour thingy bars.
When does that happen : At booting with an infected disk.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark : This was probably supposed to be an anti-virus, or at least 
 to  look  like  one.  It  copies itself  right  across  any  other 
 bootsector, however, and does not work against any other viruses.

Virus #90

Name : Valkyrie Virus.
Type : Memory-resident reset-proof (?) bootsector'n'link call virus.
Discovery date : Late 1994.
Virus can copy to drive(s) :  Current drive (A,  B or C).  Can  also 
 copy via LAN or MIDI networks.
Virus attaches itself to : Xbios and vbl_queue.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  A variety of things.  The part of this particular 
 version  that  was found will cause the "Kobold #2"  Virus  to  be 
 found on a disk upon reading the bootsector,  and the "Lucky  Lady 
 1.03" to be written when writing to the bootsector.
When does that happen : During bootsector access.
Resetproof : Not known.
Can copy to harddisk : The virus as a whole can, but this particular 
 segment only affects floppy disk drives.
Remark :  This virus has not been properly encountered. The UVK does 
 not  recognise  it on disk but only recognises  the  segment  that 
 attaches itself to the XBIOS vector,  when the virus is already in 
 memory. See also at end of this file.

Virus #91

Name : Goblin Virus B.
Discovery date : May 1995.
Remark : See Goblin Virus A (#19). The only thing changed about this 
 version  if the initial branch code,  now preceeded by a  longword 
 zero, with an adapted BRA. This virus, together with the next two, 
 was sent in one batch by someone anonymous who probably made these 
 variations himself.  They all have in common that only the  branch 
 commands  have  been modified,  effectively  disabling  them  from 
 recognition by the UVK so far.

Virus #92

Name : Tiny Virus B.
Discovery date : May 1995.
Remark : See Tiny Virus A (#85) and Goblin Virus B (#91). The branch 
 was changed to a NOP followed by the regular branch, adapted.

Virus #93

Name : Darkness Virus B (Nightmare of Brooklyn #2 'Darkness').
Discovery date : May 1995.
Remark :  See Darkness Virus A (#73) and Goblin Virus B  (#91).  The 
 branch was changed to BPL.

Virus #94

Name : Pharaoh Virus.
Type : Memory-resident reset-proof bootsector call virus.
Discovery date : Spring 1996.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus  attaches  itself to :  Hdv_bpb,  resvector  and  undocumented  
 reset-resistant.
Disks  can be immunized against it :  Yes,  though it is  not  known 
 exactly how.
Immunizable  with  UVK :  Very  likely.  It copies to  none  of  the 
 immunized disks I tried to have it infect.
What can happen :  Noise is made, as well as a high frequency sound.
When does that happen : After five copies have been made.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk : No.
Remark :  A particularly devious virus, which uses two 32-bit random 
 values to double-encrypt itself. It can also start at 13 different 
 locations  in the bootsector,  and the initial instruction can  be 
 one  of 2048 different ones.  This results in a total of (2^32)  * 
 (2^32)  * 13 * 2048 different versions that it can make of  itself 
 (when  multiplied that's 4.9112611*10^23...).  It is  also  MS-DOS 
 mimicking.
 It  was  sent  to me anonymously,  with  an  Arnhem  (Netherlands) 
 postmark. The virus is Falcon-compatible but does not copy to high 
 density disks.  As it fiddles around with BPB FAT values, programs 
 such  as  "FCopy" and "Knife ST" may fail to operate  properly  on 
 infected  disks because they may find the manipulated  BPB  values 
 hard to swallow.
 It  is also known as "The Curse Virus" or "Klatwa Virus" (this  is 
 Polish  for "Curse",  and was used to make it appear as if it  was 
 written in Poland).
 Disks  once  infected  with  the "Pharaoh  Virus"  will  never  be 
 completely regular because of the virus having rearranged  various 
 values in FAT and BPB. Copy all files you need to retain off them, 
 then perform a soft or hard format, and copy the files back.

Virus #95

Name : Carpe Diem Virus.
Type : Memory-resident reset-proof bootsector virus originating from 
 a Trojan Horse.
Discovery date : Spring 1996.
Virus can copy to drive(s) : Current floppy drive (A or B).
Virus attaches itself to :  Hdv_bpb, resvector, vbl and undocumented  
 reset-resistant.
Disks can be immunized against it : No.
Immunizable with UVK : No.
What can happen :  The text "BO[BJOF" appears at the top left of the 
 screen. Your computer can crash.
When does that happen :  The text is displayed 2048 vertical  blanks 
 after  system  start-up (on a 50 Hz colour monitor that  would  be 
 after about 40 seconds).  The crash can (and will) happen any time 
 after that.
Resetproof : Yes.
Can copy to harddisk :  Yes,  but only in a file form ("~.PRG",  see 
 below).
Remark :  This virus has an interesting history.  It originally came 
 in a ZIP archive called "CARPDIEM.ZIP". It contained a file called 
 "CARPDIEM.PRG"  (normally 91,750 bytes in size) and a  small  text 
 file with the contents "Sease the day,  and run this great  falcon 
 enhanced game!!" (sic).  Upon running this 'game',  nothing  would 
 appear  to  happen (though a quick eye would see  the  text  "Ruth 
 Marcs  Development Inc.  (Dedicated to the memory of Lucky  Lady)" 
 flicking  on and off the top of the screen).  The 'game'  wouldn't 
 run, and the desktop would be displayed again. The virus, however, 
 would  have installed itself in memory and on the  current  floppy 
 disk,  and  would  have written the "~.PRG" file  (see  below)  in 
 C :\AUTO\. Useless, the "CARPDIEM.ZIP" file and related items would 
 be thrown away. So this virus actually arose from what is commonly 
 known  as  a "Trojan Horse".  Even if you'd get rid of  all  virus 
 occurrences on floppy disks,  the "~.PRG" file would reinstall  it 
 on floppy every time you reboot.  Likewise,  the floppy version of 
 the  virus  would  reinstall the "~.PRG"  file!  So  it  is  quite 
 impossible  to  let  the  "Ultimate  Virus  Killer"  on  its   own 
 completely get rid of the virus for you.
 HOW TO PROPERLY GET RID OF THE "CARPE DIEM VIRUS".
 You  have to remember that,  on an infected system,  there  are  a 
 potential number of three copies of the virus :  One on your floppy 
 disk,  one  in the hard drive C :\AUTO\ folder and one  in  memory. 
 These are the steps :
 1) First you have to reboot without a disk, or with a disk that is 
 guarenteed  to  be virus free.  Turn your system off  for  half  a 
 minute.  This will get rid of two of the possible three copies  of 
 the virus in your system (in memory and on floppy).  Make sure the 
 floppy disk is write-protected.
 2) Turn your computer back on.  Press [CONTROL] during the booting 
 process. This way - at least with the Atari hard disk driver - the 
 hard  disk will be installed and accessible,  but the programs  in 
 the \AUTO\ folder will *not* be executed. If you have another hard 
 disk driver installed, simply try to bypass hard disk installation 
 altogether  (pressing  [CONTROL],  [LEFT  SHIFT]  and  [ALTERNATE] 
 simultaneously  usually ought to do the job) and install the  hard 
 disk driver from floppy.  This,  too,  will not install any of the 
 \AUTO\ folder programs.  If you have a Claus Brod hard disk driver 
 installed,  all  you  need  to  do  is  simply  boot  off  another 
 partition, like D :.
 3) Now you have to get rid of a file called "~.PRG" in the  \AUTO\ 
 folder  of hard disk partition C :.  It can't be  located  anywhere 
 else.  Unfortunately,  the  file is hidden.  That means you  can't 
 delete  it until you can see it,  and you can't normally  see  it. 
 There are probably quite a few ways to delete it :
 i) With "GfA Basic".  Go into "direct mode",  "chdrive" to drive C 
 and "chdir" to the \AUTO\ folder.  Now,  with "files",  you  can 
 display the full directory,  including hidden files.  You can  now 
 use the "kill" command to delete "~.prg".
 ii)  With  the alternative file  selector  "Selectric".  Turn  the 
 "display  hidden"  option  on,  and simply delete  the  file  from 
 "Selectric" itself.  "Selectric" can be started from the  desktop, 
 without needing to start it from the AUTO folder.  You might  have 
 to switch to a higher resolution first, though.
 iii)  In the absence of the two options mentioned above,  you  can 
 use  any command line interpreter (such as  "COMMAND.PRG").  These 
 may  not  allow you to delete the file,  but this is  no  problem. 
 Using  the "ren" command you can rename the file,  for example  to 
 "file.xxx".  This will not remove the file from the \AUTO\ folder, 
 but will render it completely harmless - after all,  only programs 
 with  the "prg" extension are executed when the \AUTO\  folder  is 
 invoked.
 4) Now, with a clean and uninfected system, you can get rid of all 
 occurrences  of the virus on all your floppies with the  "Ultimate 
 Virus Killer".
 IMPORTANT :  The floppy-based version of the "Carpe Diem Virus"  is 
 recognised without further ado.  To recognise the tiny (1024-byte) 
 "~.PRG"  file from the link virus check (both  the  "CARPDIEM.PRG" 
 mother  file and the "~.PRG" file are  recognised,  regardless  of 
 what  name they might currently have) you have to set  the  lowest 
 limit of the link virus check to 1 Kb (this will cause only  files 
 below 1 Kb not to be scanned).  By default, this value is set to 3 
 Kb,  which would cause the "~.PRG" file to be skipped.  The lowest 
 link  virus check limit can be altered by means of  the  "UVK.CNF" 
 file  (see  the appropriate manual  section).  A  line  containing 
 ".001" (without the quotes) added at the end of the file (using  a 
 text editor, for example) will do the job.
 Watch out :  On the Toad Computers CD ROM "Bird of Prey" you should 
 not use the file CARPDIEM.PRG in the folder TOAD/NEWSTUFF!

Virus #96

Name : Mad Virus D.
Discovery date : Autumn 1996.
Remark :  See Mad Virus A (#2).  This virus version could be written 
 by a "Bootsector Re-Installer" utility (by Tronic of Effect, alias 
 of  John Cove).  The difference is that it is located at an  extra 
 offset of $1C bytes from the beginning of the bootsector.

Virus #97

Name : Kobold #2 Virus C.
Discovery date : Autumn 1996.
Remark :  See Kobold #2 Virus A (#16).  This virus version could  be 
 written  by  a  "Bootsector Re-Installer" utility  (by  Tronic  of 
 Effect,  alias of John Cove). The difference is that it is located 
 at  an  extra  offset  of $1C bytes  from  the  beginning  of  the 
 bootsector.

Virus #98

Name : Signum Virus F.
Discovery date : Autumn 1996.
Remark :  See  Signum  Virus A (#1).  This virus  version  could  be 
 written  by  a  "Bootsector Re-Installer" utility  (by  Tronic  of 
 Effect,  alias of John Cove). The difference is that it is located 
 at  an  extra  offset  of $1C bytes  from  the  beginning  of  the 
 bootsector.

Virus #99

Name : Ghost Virus K.
Discovery date : Early autumn 1997.
Remark :  A corrupted version of the Ghost Virus J, as far as can be 
 seen.  Might additionally crash your computer besides causing  the 
 mouse movements to be altered (also see Ghost Virus A).


Virus #100

Name : Signum Virus G.
Discovery date : Winter 1997.
Remark :  A corrupted version of the Signum Virus E.  Might crash an 
 infected system (also see Signum Virus A).

Virus #101 - 109

Name :  These  are various older and newer versions of  the  Macumba 
 Virus.

LINK VIRUSES

Virus #1

Name : Milzbrand.
Type : Non-resident non-overwriting link virus.
Discovery date : Spring 1988 (Wim Nottroth).
Symptoms : When the date stamp is set to 1987, it clears track 0  of 
 your  floppy  disk,  destroying  all  FAT  data  and  filling  the  
 bootsector  with  a  message "Dies ist ein  Virus!"  ("This  is  a  
 virus!").  Also,  it display six "viruses" on the screen. Symptoms 
 can  vary because the virus was offered as a,   fully  documented, 
 type-in-listing  (!) in the German mag  "Computer &  Technik"  and 
 the reader could easily adapt the  routines himself.
Remark :  This  virus was written by Eckhard Krabel,  who  lives  in  
 Berlin,  Germany.  The editorial address of C'T Magazine is Verlag 
 Heinz Heise GmbH,  Helstorfer Str.  7,  Postfach 61 04 07,  D-3000 
 Hannover 61, West Germany. Telephone (Germany) (0)511/5352-0. It's 
 also  called  "Anthrax Virus" (which is English for  the  original 
 name in German).

Virus #2

Name : Virus Construction Set Part II.
Type : Non-resident non-overwriting link virus.
Discovery date : September 4th 1988 (Frank Lemmen).
Symptoms : These vary from the message "You have ten seconds to find 
 out how to prevent a reset" (after which a countdown  follows  and 
 a  reset) to routines that can be written by the user   himself  - 
 the  "Virus Construction Set" is a programme with which  the  user 
 can create his own viruses! Symptoms are therefore without limit!
Remark :  The "Virus Construction Set Part II" was published by  GFE 
 R.  Becker KG,  K”nigsteiner Str.  76, D-6232 Bad Soden am Taunus, 
 West Germany. It used to be for sale at 80 German Marks, but isn't 
 any more.

Virus #3

Name : Uluru.
Type : Memory-resident non-overwriting link virus.
Discovery date : November 1988.
Symptoms :  Installs itself in memory but is not reset-resistant. It 
 infects  every  programme that will be started  once  an  infected 
 programme  has caused it to be installed,  and only does  this  on 
 drive A or B, and on files that are at least 10,000 bytes in size. 
 After  a certain time,  it writes a dummy text file on  disk  when 
 infecting a file. This text file contains the sentence ";-) As MAD 
 Zimmermann will be watching you )-;".
Remark : Also called "Mad Zimmermann Virus", for obvious  reasons.

Virus #4

Name : Papa & Garfield.
Type : Memory-resistant reset-proof non-overwriting link virus.
Discovery date : November 1988.
Symptoms :  This  is a reset-proof virus,  that installs  itself  in 
 memory  when an infected programme is loaded.  After  that,  every 
 other programme that is loaded into memory is infected.  It can be 
 recognized  by  a  flashing pixel in the left top  corner  of  the 
 screen and the message "Garfield and Papa was here",  preceded  by 
 a bleep sound.
Remark :  Probably  only works on one megabyte machines (or  higher) 
 since it uses the absolute screen address $F8000.

Virus #5

Name : Crash.
Type : Memory-resident reset-proof non-overwriting link virus.
Discovery Date : March 20th 1989 (Claus-Peter Moeller).
Symptoms :  A reset-proof virus,  that also installs itself in  your 
 system and then infects every programme you load in afterwards. Is 
 only  active on the current drive,  but can copy itself  into  any 
 folder. It can even infect files that have been immunized with the 
 "Ultimate Virus Killer".
Remark : Probably programmed in Switzerland.

ANTI-VIRUSES

 An  Anti-virus is a small programme that works just like a  virus, 
but that doesn't format your disk,  clear FAT sectors,  lock up the 
system or do anything of the kind. Instead of doing evil things, it 
e.g.  warns  you when it finds an executable disk in the drive  (it 
can then for example start bleeping and flashing).  This is a  good 
way  to  find  out if a disk has an executable  bootsector  or  not 
(which does not mean that it has or hasn't a virus!). For First Aid 
help,  anti-viruses  are quite neat.  They also copy themselves  to 
other disks (not to hard disk),  except when these already  contain 
an executable bootsector (in which case they warn you).

Anti-virus #1

Name : AntiVirus.
Remark :  There  are sixteen different versions of  this  AntiVirus, 
 which were all written by Helmut Neukirchen.  The following  table 
 includes  them all.  They are all recognized by the UVK,  and  the 
 English  versions  of 5.1 can be written using the  'REPAIR  DISK' 
 option.  The texts vary slightly and are not specified here.  None 
 of them copy to hard disk, and none of them are reset-proof.
* Version 3.0GB
Discovery date : August 8th 1988.
Written on May 3rd 1988.
Symptoms :  On  system boot-up,  a message appears on  your  screen : 
 "This  Anti-virus  beeps and flashes if the actual  bootsector  is 
 executable then that might be a virus!  Remove this Anti-virus  by 
 reset!"  It  multiplies itself  to  other,  non-executable  floppy 
 disks.
* Version 3.0NL
Remark : This was a simple translation job by yours truly.
* Version 4.0
Written on August 21st 1988.
* Version 4.1
Written on September 21st 1988.
Remark :  Also  recognizes  IBM  disks on which  it  does  not  copy  
 itself.
* Version 4.2
Written on September 21st 1988.
Remark : A version of 4.2 that does not copy itself to other  disks.
* Version 4.5
Written on October 18th 1988.
Remark : There are German and English versions of this  AntiVirus.
* Version 4.6
Written on October 18th 1988.
Remark : A version of 4.5 that does not copy itself to other  disks.
* Version 4.8
Written on December 5th 1988.
Remark : Uses XBRA structures, completely reprogrammed.
* Version 4.10
Written on May 19th 1989.
Remark : Calls itself 'VirusL„hmer'.
* Version 4.11

Remark :  A  version  of  4.10 that does not copy  itself  to  other  
disks.
* Version 5.0
Written on May 12th 1989.
Remark : This was a version released by mistake, and actually  older 
 than 4.11.
* Version 5.1
Written on April 23rd 1990.
Remark :   There  are  cloning  and  non-cloning  versions  of  this 
 AntiVirus,  each in in a German and an English version. Recognizes 
 mutation, and recognizes disks that are immunized using the UVK.
* Version 5.2
Written on ?
Remark :  Helmut  has  in  the  mean  time  stopped  developing  the 
 AntiVirus.

Anti-virus #2

Name : Antivirus #2.
Discovery date : September 10th 1988.
Symptoms :  On system boot-up,  a message appears on your screen  at 
 the  top line :  "ANTI-VIRUS".  It multiplies itself to other  non-
 executable disks,  except when it's already present on them.  When 
 an  executable  bootsector is found,  it inverts all  colours  and 
 bleeps.

Anti-virus #3

Name : Antivirus User V1.4.
Discovery date : May 30th 1989 (Carmen Brunner).
Symptoms :  Installs  itself in memory and warns you when  it  finds  
 certain disks : RED = Virus 1 (Signum Virus), PURPLE = Virus 2 (Mad 
 Virus),  BLUE = Bootsector,  WHITE = Nothing. It multiplies itself 
 to  WHITE disks on drive A only.  Its virus recognition  is   very 
 bad,  and  many  other disks are also suspected of being  RED   or 
 PURPLE - including perfectly harmless ones.
Remark : Written by someone called Le Fele.

Anti-virus #4

Name : Antivirus #4.
Discovery date : June 28th 1989 (Wim Maarse).
Symptoms : This antivirus is reset-proof. It probably only works  on 
 German Blitter TOS (TOS 1.02 version from 22.04.87), since it uses 
 an  absolute ROM jump address to the Get_BPB routine of that  TOS. 
 It copies to other disks.

Anti-virus #5

Name : Terminator V1.0.
Discovery date : March 1990.
Symptoms :  Does not copy itself,  and is reset-proof. Automatically 
 checks  disks for executable bootsectors,  and checks  memory  for 
 resident programmes.
Remark :   Written  by  Claus-Georg  Frein  for  a  commercial  copy  
 programme called "Turbobooster".

Anti-virus #6

Name : Pashley Antivirus.
Discovery date : January 18th 1990 (Terry Simmons).
Symptoms :  Copies itself to other disks, and will flash the  screen 
 and beep when an executable bootsector is found.
Remark : Written by Simeon Pashley.

Anti-virus #7

Name : Powell Antivirus.
Discovery date : July 30th 1989 (George Woodside).
Symptoms :  Does  not  copy itself to other disks.  Will  bleep  and   
 flash the screen when an executable bootsector is found.
Remark : Written by virus killer programmer Mark S. Powell.

Anti-virus #8

Name : The Killer V2.0.
Discovery date : March 18th 1990 (George Woodside).
Symptoms :  Does not copy itself. Gives out messages in French  when  
 executable bootsector is found.
Remark : Written by Emmanuel Collignon/Omikron France.

Anti-virus #9

Name : VKill Guard.
Discovery date : May 14th 1990.
Symptoms :  Does not copy itself,  yet installs itself in memory and 
 flashes and beeps when executable bootsectors are found. Its sign-
 on  message  is  'This Guard remains active  until  reset.  If  it 
 detects  an  executable bootsector,  it will beep  and  flash  the 
 screen.'
Remark : Written by George Woodside for his programme "VKill".

Anti-virus #10

Name : New Order Antivirus 1.02.
Discovery date : May 22nd 1990 (Glenn Robison).
Symptoms :  Prints message and locks up the computer when a virus is 
 found to bend a bector. It checks the following vectors : Hdv_init, 
 Hdv_bpb, Hdv_rw, Hdv_boot, Hdv_mediach, BIOS and XBIOS.

Anti-virus #11

Name : Floppyshop Antivirus.
Disovery date : April 29th 1990 (Kevin Brown).
Symptoms :   Beeps  and  flashes  the  screen  when  an   executable 
 bootsector is found that doesn't contain itself. Doesn't multiply.

Anti-virus #12

Name : Protector II Antivirus.

Anti-virus #13

Name : Incoder Antivirus.
Discovery date : July 1990.
Symptoms :  Checks the bootsector for the occurrence of the  Hdv_bpb 
 address ($472).  Checks if Hdv_bpb points at $FCxxxx or not  (will 
 therefore  imply something is wrong when you work on  an  STE,  ST 
 Book or when you use a hard disk). If things are wrong, it colours 
 the  screen and locks the system.  If things are OK it will  print 
 "The Incoders - safe boot" and flash one colour.

Anti-virus #14

Name : Auntie-Virus.
Discovery date : Summer 1990 (David Heiland).
Symptoms : Same as Anti-virus #1. Only the texts have been  changed.
Remark : Probably made in England.

Anti-virus #15

Name : Shadow Antivirus.
Discovery date : July 1990.
Symptoms :  Checks  the  system for  reset-resistant  programmes  in 
 memory on boot-up. Not resident, does not copy itself.
Remark : Written by the Shadow of the Dynamic Duo, England.

Anti-virus #16

Name : Fury Antivirus.
Discovery date : August 24th 1990.
Symptoms :  Same  at  Antivirus  #13,  of which  it  is  an  adapted  
 version.
Remark : Made by Fury of Legacy (ex-Replicants).

Anti-virus #17

Name : Unicorn Anti-Virus-Reset Antivirus.
Discovery date : December 11th 1990.
Symptoms :  It  is  a resident programme that will clear  all  reset  
 vectors upon reset.
Remark : Probably written in Holland.

Anti-virus #18

Name : Zarko Berberski Antivirus.
Discovery date : Unknown (Mike Mee).
Symptoms :  There  are two different versions of  this.  One  copies 
 itself and one doesn't.  They both have the additional ability  to 
 wait 'x' seconds until the hard disk has finished booting.
Remark :   Written   by  Zarko  Berberski  from  what  used  to   be  
 Jugoslavia.

Anti-virus #19

Name : Odie Antivirus.
Discovery date : Unknown (Mike Mee).
Symptoms :  Puts  a  picture  of Odie  (dog  character  in  Garfield 
 cartoons) on the screen.  Is resident,  and checks for  executable 
 disks.  It will copy itself on non-executable disks,  and it  will 
 warn when it finds an executable disk that does not have itself on 
 it (the screen is turned red).
Remark : Uses the XBRA protocol.

Anti-virus #20

Name : TDT 4.0 Antighost.
Discovery date : June 1992.
Symptoms :  Is  a  resident antivirus that copies  itself  across  a  
 bootsector that it finds the Ghost virus on.
Remark : Written by Altair in France.

Anti-virus #21

Name : Caledonia Exorcist 2.0.
Discovery date : December 1992.
Symptoms :  At  startup it will put the message "Caledonia  Exorcist 
 2.0"  on the screen.  Whenever an executable bootsector  is  found 
 during it being resident in memory,  it will warn you. At any time 
 you  can press ALT-HELP to have this antivirus install  itself  on 
 the current disk.  It will not copy itself without you wanting  it 
 to.
Remark :  Written for/by the Caledonia PD library.  The copy routine 
 crashes  on  my system.  Not to be confused with some  virus  free 
 disks of the same name made by some French hackers.

Anti-virus #22

Name : Agrajag Boot 2.
Discovery date : July 1993.
Symptoms :  At  startup it will put the message "AGRABOOT 2" on  the 
 screen.  Whenever  an executable bootsector is found while  it  is 
 present in memory,  the screen will flash.  It will flash RED when 
 such a bootsector is suspicious.  Upon starting it will also  find 
 reset-proof programs and the like.  It will not copy itself to any 
 other disks of its own accord.
Remark : Written by Michael James from Glasgow, autumn 1992. Quite a 
 good Anti-virus actually.

Anti-virus #23

Name : STAX Boot Saver 5.0
Discovery date : July 1997.
Symptoms :  At startup it will put the message 'STAX Boot Saver 5.0' 
 on  the screen.  If it finds the reset vector bent (whether  by  a 
 virus or another reset-resistant program) it displays the  message 
 '*** VIRUS FOUND ***',  else it displays the message '*** NO VIRUS 
 ***'.  It will not copy itself to other disks,  indeed is not even 
 resident in memory itself.
Remark : This anti-virus version dates August 29th 1992.

VIRUSES  KNOWN TO EXIST BUT NOT RECOGNISED BECAUSE NOT  ENCOUNTERED 
YET

 Unknown virus #1-#17 : Macumba Virus

 Several different versions of the Macumba Virus (Cf.) exist,  none 
of  which  have  been  spotted so far  and  can  therefore  not  be 
recognised  yet.  The  following versions are known  to  exist  but 
cannot be recognised : 0.9, 0.9a, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 3.1 TT, 3.2 TT, 3.4 
TT, 3.5 TT, 3.6 TT, 3.7 TT, 3.8 TT, 3.9 TT, 4.0 TT, 4.0b TT and 5.0 
Falcon.  Allegedly,  only  3 to 5 different versions ever  actually 
made it into the world.

 Unknown virus #18 : Valkyrie Virus

 This  is  an especially dangerous hybrid kind  of  bootsector/link 
virus that spreads to hard disk files, floppy disk bootsectors and, 
via LAN or MIDI networks, even to other systems connected. It hides 
itself  effectively,  and there are a few versions of it that  have 
varying  destruction routine symptoms.  The common denominator  was 
that,  on January 8th (birthday of its programmer,  Lucky Lady from 
Slovenia),  the  screen would clear and the message "I  will  never 
love again!" would appear on the screen. A system infected with the 
Valkyrie  Virus  will have a partition C volume  name  with  "VLKY" 
encoded in it;  files infected with it have "VLKY" as last longword 
value.
 In memory, it is partly recognised by the UVK.
