 General Comments: 
       The Suicidal virus was submitted in March, 1993.  Its origin is 
       unknown.  Suicidal is a non-resident, direct action infector of 
       .COM files, including COMMAND.COM.  It doesn't infect past the 
       fifth .COM file in a directory. 
       When a program infected with the Suicidal virus is executed, the 
       Suicidal virus will infect one .COM file located in the current 
       directory.  Infected programs will have a file length increase of 
       305 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 be altered. 
       The following text strings are visible within the viral code in all 
       Suicidal infected programs: 
               "Suicidal! -/\-=> [Stingray/VIPER] <1992>" 
       Suicidal doesn't appear to do anything besides replicate.
