Diablo Boot

When an attempt is made to load the system from an infected diskette, this simple boot virus installs its copy into memory and infects the MBR. Then it infects all diskettes in drive A: if they are not write-protected and their capacity is higher than 1.2 Mb. It has no other form of manifestation.
