 General Comments: 
       The Ming virus was received in July, 1994.  It appears to be from 
       Hong Kong.  Ming is a non-resident, direct action infector of .COM 
       files, including COMMAND.COM. 
       When a program infected with the Ming virus is executed, this virus 
       will infect one .COM file located in the current directory.  Infected 
       programs will have a file length increase of 1,017 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 not be altered.  The 
       following text strings are visible within the viral code in all 
       Ming infected programs: 
               "Nice To Meet You! Copyright(c) 1-11-1993 By Ming. From 
                Tuen Mun, Hong Kong"
