 General Comments: 
       The Korea, or LBC Boot, virus was isolated in March 1990 in Seoul, 
       Korea.  This virus is a memory resident boot sector infector for 
       5.25" 360K diskettes. 
       The Korea virus is not intentionally destructive, it does nothing 
       in its current form except for replicating.  In some instances, 
       when Korea infects a diskette it will damage the root directory as 
       it moves the original boot sector to sector 11, the last sector of 
       the root directory.  If sector 11 previously contained directory 
       entries, they will be lost.
