 General Comments: 
       The Ebbelwoi virus was received in February, 1994, and appears to be 
       from Germany.  Ebbelwoi is a non-resident, direct action infector of 
       .COM programs, including COMMAND.COM.  It only infects programs 
       located on the C: drive. 
 
       When a program infected with the Ebbelwoi virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect one .COM program located in the C: drive current 
       directory.  Infected programs will have a file length increase of 402 
       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 appear 
       to be unaltered, however the seconds field will have been set to "06".
