 General Comments: 
       The TechnoRat, or Rat-615, virus was submitted in March, 1993.  It 
       appears to be from the USSR.  TechnoRat is a non-resident, direct 
       action infector of .COM programs, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with the TechnoRat virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect all of the .COM programs located in the current 
       directory, and the directory directly above the current directory. 
       Infected programs will have a file length increase of 615 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, however the seconds field will have been set to "62".  The 
       following text strings are visible within the TechnoRat viral code 
       in all infected files: 
               "Techno-Rat I. Copyright by Lord Blaise, Odessa 1991." 
               "*.* *.COM ..\*.COM" 
       It is unknown what TechnoRat may do besides replicate.
