 General Comments: 
       The VHX or VHX.322 virus was received in January, 1996.  Its origin 
       or point of isolation is unknown.  VHX is a non-resident direct 
       action infector of .COM files, including COMMAND.COM, though it 
       will not infect files located on the A: drive. 
       When a program infected with this virus is executed on the system 
       hard disk, this virus will infect from one to many .COM files 
       located in the current directory.  Infected .COM files will have 
       a file length increase of 322 bytes with the virus being located 
       at the end of the file.  The program's time in the DOS disk 
       directory listing will not be altered, but the date will have been 
       set to "04-27-94".  The following text string is visible within 
       the viral code:
