 General Comments: 
       The FeelBad virus was submitted in July, 1994.  Its origin or point 
       of isolation is unknown.  FeelBad is a non-resident, direct action 
       infector of .COM programs, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with the FeelBad virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect all of the .COM programs located in the current 
       directory.  Infected programs will have a file length increase of 
       1,124 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, but the seconds field will have been set to "58". 
       The following text strings are visible within the viral code in all 
       infected programs: 
               "We're very sorry for disturbing your session." 
               "We just wanted to state that we feel bad about Ritzen." 
               "We have taken the utmost care to insure that nothing 
                has been damaged." 
               "Please go on with whatever You were doing."
