 General Comments: 
       The B&B, or Beavis & Butthead, virus was submitted in August, 1993. 
       It is from the United States.  This virus is a non-resident, direct 
       action infector of .COM programs, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with the B&B virus is executed, this virus 
       will infect one .COM file in the current directory.  Infected 
       programs will have a file length increase of 716 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 encrypted within the B&B viral code: 
               "Beavis & Butthead were here.  Huhuh." 
               "Dude. check out the secret messages." 
               "This virus sucks." 
               "Huh Hnn Hnn Ahuh" 
               "It is unknown what this virus does besides replicate" 
               "Huh Huhhuh Huhhuh Huh" 
               "*.**Beavis & Butthead Virus, by Primal FuryA*.*" 
       The B&B virus will occassionally corrupt programs and data files, 
       including the hidden system files, by adding 41 bytes to the end 
       of the file.  Contained within these 41 bytes will be the following 
               "Beavis & Butthead were here.  Huhuh.    "
