 General Comments: 
       The Kommuna virus was received in January, 1995.  Its origin or 
       point of isolation is unknown.  Kommuna is a non-resident, direct 
       action infector of .COM files, including COMMAND.COM.  It may 
       display a text or graphic moving message when an infected program 
       is executed. 
       When a program infected with the Kommuna virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect one .COM file located in the current directory. 
       Programs infected with the Kommuna virus will have a file length 
       increase of 801 bytes with the virus being located at the end of 
       the file.  The program's time in the DOS disk directory listing 
       will not be altered, but the file's date will be changed to 
       4-26-80.  The following text strings are visible within the viral 
       code in all Kommuna infected programs: 
               "Don't warry please !!!" 
       A graphic message of a train moving across the middle of the screen 
       from right to left may be displayed when an infected program is 
       executed.  The train stops at the left of the screen, covering what 
       appears to be a train station.  The text string "parovozik" appears 
       within the body of the train, while the text string 
       "KOMMUNA(OSTANOVKA)" appears above the station. 
       The virus may also display the message "Don't warry please !!!" when 
       an infected program is executed.
