 General Comments: 
       The Stupid-1355 virus was received in April, 1992.  Its origin is 
       unknown.  Stupid-1355 is a non-resident, direct action infector 
       of .COM programs, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with Stupid-1355 is executed, the virus 
       will infect one .COM program in the current directory, and then 
       a system hang will occur.  If COMMAND.COM is in the current 
       directory, it may become infected.  Once COMMAND.COM becomes 
       infected, the system will fail to boot. 
       Programs infected with the Stupid-1355 virus will have a file 
       length increase of 1,355 bytes with the virus being located at 
       the end of the infected file.  There will be no change to the 
       file's date and time in the DOS disk directory listing.  One 
       text string can be found within the viral code in infected
