 General Comments: 
       The COM virus is not actually a specific virus, but a general 
       category or group of viruses which can be genericly detected by 
       anti-viral software using scanner technology.  It was first 
       implemented by McAfee Associates in their ViruScan program with 
       version 89. 
       The viruses detected by the COM virus detection mechanism in 
       ViruScan are generally non-resident, direct action .COM program 
       infectors.  These viruses may be malicious.  Viruses which may 
       be detected as the COM virus by ViruScan include: 
                 Friday The 13th COM 
                 Revenge Attacker 
       New viruses may also be detected by this mechanism which are not 
       documented in VSUM.  If you detect a COM virus, and it does not 
       match one of the above viruses, please submit a sample to the 
       author of VSUM for analysis and inclusion in VSUM.
