 General Comments: 
       The Dzino virus was received in January, 1995.  Its origin or point 
       of isolation is unknown.  Dzino is a non-resident, direct action 
       infector of .COM files, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with the Dzino virus is executed, the Dzino 
       virus will infect one .COM file located in the current directory. 
       Programs infected with the Dzino virus will have a file length 
       increase of 1,000 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 not appear to be altered, though the seconds field will 
       have been set to "62".  The following text strings are visible 
       within the viral code in all Dzino infected programs: 
           "\\TP7     S  S  NASK" 
           "7 OFT CES\SL\MAXO" 
           "*.* *.com" 
           "\ Cau Dzino, padaj votad" 
       It is unknown what the Dzino virus does besides replicate.
