 General Comments: 
       The Death Dragon, or Eddy'93, virus was received in November, 1993. 
       It is originally from the Republic Of South Africa, where it was 
       uploaded to at least one bulletin board system (BBS).  Death Dragon 
       is a non-resident, direct action infector of .COM programs, including 
       When a program infected with the Death Dragon virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect all of the .COM files located in the current 
       directory.  Infected programs will have a file length increase of 528 
       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 have 
       been updated to the current system date and time when infection 
       occurred.  The following text strings are visible within the viral 
       code in all Death Dragon infected programs: 
               "[DEATH DRAGON]" 
               "@echo off" 
               "echo Fuck you, arsehole!   You are a SHITTY user and" 
               "echo I hate you!" 
               "Eddie has returned on tour (1993) - VMAG version" 
               "press a key..." 
               "*.com c:\autoexec.bat" 
       In April of any year, execution of an infected program will result in 
       the following message being displayed on the system monitor: 
               "Eddie has returned on tour (1993) - VMAG version"
