 General Comments: 
       The Striker #1 virus was isolated in the Eastern United States in 
       March, 1991.  This virus is a non-resident, direct action infector 
       of .COM programs, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with Striker #1 is executed, the virus will 
       infect one .COM program.  Infected .COM programs will have the 
       first thirteen bytes altered, and then the body of the virus 
       appended to the end of the program.  Infected programs will show a 
       file length increase of 461 bytes in the disk directory, file date 
       and times are not altered. 
       Infected programs can be easily identified as the text string 
       "Striker #1" will appear in the fourth through thirteenth bytes of 
       all infected programs.  This string also appears near the end of 
       infected programs. 
       Striker #1 does not appear to do anything besides replicate.
