 General Comments: 
       The Warez-1341 virus was submitted in April, 1993.  Its origin or 
       point of isolation is unknown.  Warez-1341 is a non-resident 
       direct action infector of .COM programs, but not COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with the Warez-1341 virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect all of the .COM programs in the current directory 
       which are larger than approximately 2K in size.  Infected programs 
       will have a file length increase of 1,341 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 Warez-1341 
       infected programs: 
               "- W A R E Z   D 0 0 D -" 
       The Warez-1341 virus will occassionally corrupt the file 
       allocation table on the system hard disk when an infected program 
       is executed.
