 General Comments: 
       The Small ARCV virus was received from England in November, 1992. 
       Small ARCV is a non-resident, direct action infector of .COM 
       programs, including COMMAND.COM.  It doesn't appear to do anything 
       besides replicate. 
       When a program infected with the Small ARCV virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect one .COM program located in the current directory. 
       Infected programs will have a file length increase of 236 bytes with 
       the virus being located at the end of the file.  The program's date 
       and time will not be altered.  The following text string can be 
       found within the viral code in all Small ARCV infected programs: 
               "[SmallARCV] Apache Warrior. *.com"
