 General Comments: 
       First reported in December, 1989 by James Berry of Kent, England, 
       the Chaos virus is a memory resident boot sector infector of floppy 
       and hard disks. 
       When the Chaos virus infects a boot sector, it overwrites the 
       original boot sector without copying it to another location on the 
       disk.  Infected boot sectors will contain the following messages: 
            "Welcome to the New Dungeon" 
            "Letz be cool guys" 
       The Chaos virus will flag the disk as being full of bad sectors 
       upon activation, though most of the supposed bad sectors are still 
       readable.  It is unknown what the activation criteria is.
