 General Comments: 
       The Consumed virus was received in February, 1995.  Its origin or 
       point of isolation is unknown.  Consumed is a non-resident, direct 
       action infector of .COM files, including COMMAND.COM.  It permanently 
       corrupts the files it infects. 
       When a program infected with the Consumed virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect one .COM file located in the current directory. 
       Programs infected with the Consumed virus will the first 380 bytes 
       of the host program overwritten with the viral code.  The program's 
       date and time in the DOS disk directory listing will have been 
       updated to the current system date and time when infection occurred. 
       The following text strings are encrypted within the viral code: 
               "*.COM [Consumed] v1.0" 
               "Coded by Data Disruptor" 
               "(c) 1993 RABID Development"

                Admiral Bailey" 
               "No host files found in this directory" 
       Once the Consumed virus has infected all of the .COM files located 
       in the current directory, it will display the following message
