 General Comments: 
       The Lutil virus was received in May, 1996, and is reported to be 
       "in the wild" in North America.  Lutil is a non-resident, direct 
       action infector of .COM files, including COMMAND.COM.  Its origin 
       or point of isolation is unknown. 
       When a program infected with the Lutil virus is executed, this 
       virus will infect one .COM file located in the current directory. 
       Infected .COM files will have a file length increase of 591 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: 
           ".. OUSE ME EST ABDA"
