 General Comments: 
       The Were Here virus was discovered in Europe in December, 1991.  It 
       is a non-resident direct action infector of .COM programs, including 
       When a program infected with Were Here is executed, the virus will 
       infect one .COM program located in the current directory.  If 
       COMMAND.COM resides in this directory, it may become infected. 
       Programs infected with Were Here will have a file length increase 
       of 838 to 851 bytes with the virus being located at the end of the 
       infected file.  The program's date and time in the DOS disk directory 
       will not have been altered. 
       The Were Here virus contains code to display the text "We're Here" 
       when an infected program is executed starting in 1992.  This text 
       is not, however, always displayed.
