 General Comments: 
       The Iron Umbrella virus was submitted in June, 1993, and appears to 
       be from Germany.  Iron Umbrella is a non-resident, direct action 
       infector of .COM programs, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with the Iron Umbrella virus is executed, 
       this virus will infect one .COM program located in the current 
       directory.  Infected programs will have a file length increase of 
       359 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 strings are encrypted within the 
       viral code in all Iron Umbrella infected programs: 
               "G+ALLERBMU NORI+" 
               "(C) 1991 by SMAUG in MNCHEN, DEUTSCHLAND!" 
               ".. *.com" 
       The first text string, read backwards, contains the virus' name.
