 General Comments: 
       The Adolf Hitler, or Adolf, virus was submitted in December, 1992. 
       Its origin or point of isolation is unknown.  This virus has been 
       named due to a text string which occurs in the virus.  It should 
       not be confused with the Adolph virus, there is no relationship 
       between the two viruses.  Adolf Hitler is a memory resident 
       infector of .COM programs, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When the first Adolf Hitler infected program is executed, this 
       virus will install itself memory resident in a "hole" in low 
       allocated system memory, hooking interrupt 21.  Total system and 
       available free memory, as indicated by the DOS CHKDSK program, will 
       not be altered. 
       Once the Adolf Hitler virus is memory resident, it will infect .COM 
       programs, including COMMAND.COM, when they are executed.  Infected 
       programs will have a file length increase of 475 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 string is visible within the viral code in all Adolf Hitler 
       infected programs: 
               "Adolf Hitler"
