 General Comments: 
       The Job or Job.405 virus was received in January, 1996.  Its origin 
       or point of isolation is unknown.  Job is a non-resident, direct 
       action infector of .EXE files. 
       When a program infected with the Job virus is executed, this virus 
       will infect one .EXE file located in the current directory. 
       Infected files will have a file length increase of 405 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 have been updated 
       to the current system date and time when infection occurred.  The 
       following text strings are visible within the viral code in all 
       infected programs: 
           "I did my job! :)" 
       The second text string above will be displayed on the system 
       monitor as a message when an infected program is executed and all 
       of the .EXE files in the current directory were previously 
       infected by the virus.
