 General Comments: 
       The Polish-376 virus originated in Poland and was submitted in 
       November, 1991.  This virus is a non-resident, direct action 
       infector of .COM files, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with Polish-376 is executed, the virus will 
       infect all .COM files located in the current directory.  If 
       COMMAND.COM resides in this directory, it will become infected as 
       Polish-376 infected programs will have a file length increase of 
       376 bytes with the virus being located at the end of the file. 
       The file's date and time in the DOS disk directory will have been 
       updated to the current system date and time when infection 
       Polish-376 does not appear to do anything besides replicate.
