 General Comments: 
       The Sonik Youth virus was submitted in August, 1993.  Its origin or 
       point of isolation is unknown.  Sonik Youth is a non-resident, direct 
       action infector of .EXE programs. 
       When a program infected with the Sonik Youth virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect one .EXE program located in the current directory. 
       Infected programs will have a file length increase of 854 to 866 
       bytes.  160 bytes will have been added to the beginning of the file, 
       with the remainder of the virus being at the end of the file.  The 
       file's date and time in the DOS disk directory listing will have been 
       altered, but not to the current system date and time.  The following 
       text strings are visible within the viral code in all Sonik Youth 
       infected programs: 
               "My mother used to say" 
               "You're the boy that can enjoy invisibility" 
               "The pleasure is everlasting" 
               "Sonik Youth originally released 29 April '92" 
       The following text string is encrypted within the viral code: 
               "*.EXE \* \" 
       Systems which have had the Sonik Youth virus present for some time 
       may experience the virus deleting .EXE programs from the current 
       directory when an infected program is executed.
