I'd say bootblock viruses must have been considerably more prevalent on the AtariST scene. Mainly because of the way they did their cracks. The "menu" disks were (most of the time) normal OS disks and did not require a custom bootloader to work (i.e. you could replace the bootblock with a Virus and it would still work) whereas more Amiga "backup" disks tended to have NDOS disks with custom bootloaders so if a Virus overwrote the bootblock the disk would no longer work.
