 General Comments: 
       The Human Greed virus was received in December, 1994.  Its origin 
       or point of isolation is unknown.  Human Greed is a non-resident, 
       direct action infector of .EXE files.  It contains some code to 
       overwrite the system hard disk. 
       When a program infected with the Human Greed virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect some .EXE files located on the system hard disk. 
       Infected files will not increase in size, but will have the first 
       666 bytes overwritten by the viral code.  The file's date and time 
       in the DOS disk directory listing will not be altered.  The following 
       text strings are encrypted within the Human Greed viral code: 
               "*.EXE *.COM .." 
               "That is not dead 
                Which can eternal lie 
                Yet with strange aeons 
                Even death may die
