 General Comments: 
       The 1308 virus was received in January, 1992.  Its origin is 
       unknown.  The 1308 virus is a non-resident, direct action infector 
       of .COM files, including COMMAND.COM. 
       Each time a program infected with the 1308 virus is executed, the 
       1308 virus will search the current directory for the first uninfected 
       .COM file.  If an uninfected .COM file is located, it will infect 
       it.  Infected .COM files will have a file length increase of 1,308 
       bytes with the virus being located at the end of the infected 
       program.  The file's date and time in the DOS disk directory listing 
       will not have been altered. 
       Systems infected with the 1308 virus may notice increasing numbers 
       of lost clusters being found on infected diskettes.  These lost 
       clusters may occur when the virus infects files, and typically occur 
       in multiples of 10.
