 General Comments: 
       The Simple 1992 virus was submitted in February, 1993, and is 
       originally from the USSR.  Simple 1992 is a non-resident, direct 
       action infector of .COM programs, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with the Simple 1992 virus is executed, the 
       Simple 1992 virus will infect all of the .COM programs in the 
       current directory, as well as the copy of COMMAND.COM located in the 
       C: drive root directory.  Infected programs will have a file length 
       increase of 424 bytes with the virus being located at the beginning 
       of the file.  The program's date and time in the DOS disk directory 
       listing will have been updated to the current system date and time 
       when infection occurred.  The following text strings can be found 
       within the Simple 1992 viral code in all infected programs: 
               "SIMPLE 1992 (c)" 
               "C:\V.0 *.COM" 
       Simple 1992 doesn't appear to do anything besides replicate.
