 General Comments: 
       The SmartC virus was received in July, 1995.  Its origin or point of 
       isolation is unknown.  SmartC is a non-resident, direct action 
       infector of .COM files, including COMMAND.COM.  It does not infect 
       very small .COM files. 
       When a program infected with the SmartC virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect all of the .COM files located in the current 
       directory.  Infected programs will have a file length increase of 
       512 bytes with the virus being located at the end of the file.  The 
       program's date and time in the DOS disk directory listing will not 
       appear to be altered, though the seconds field will have been set to 
       either "30" or "62".  The following text string is visible within 
       the viral code: 
           "Smart Cock"
