 General Comments: 
       The Godzilla virus was received in July, 1995.  Its origin or point 
       of isolation is unknown.  Godzilla is a memory resident infector of 
       .COM files, but not COMMAND.COM. 
       When the first Godzilla infected program is executed, this virus 
       will install itself memory resident as a low system memory TSR of 
       1,152 bytes.  Interrupts 1C and 21 will be hooked by the virus in 
       Once the Godzilla virus is memory resident, it will infect .COM 
       files, but not COMMAND.COM, when they are executed.  Infected .COM 
       files will have a file length increase of 890 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 be altered.  The following 
       text string is encrypted within the viral code: 
           "AntiPascal-1 (C)Godzilla Corp." 
       It is unknown what the Godzilla virus may do besides replicate.
