 General Comments: 
       The Infinity virus was received in January, 1992.  It is from 
       Canada.  Infinity is a non-resident, direct action infector of 
       .COM files, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with Infinity is executed, the Infinity 
       virus will search the current directory for the first uninfected 
       .COM file.  If an uninfected .COM file is found, the virus will 
       infect it. 
       Infinity infected .COM files will have a file length increase of 
       732 bytes.  The virus will be located at the end of the infected 
       file.  The file's date and time in the DOS disk directory listing 
       will not be altered. 
       The following text strings can be found within the viral code of 
       Infinity infected programs: 
               "SKISM ReplicatoR" 
               "FiRe is a LAMER... destroy InFiniTy!" 
       It is unknown if Infinity does anything besides replicate.
