Does harddisks can have bootblock-viruses?

I read whatever harddisk with VirusZ and its bootblock isnt shown. This is right? Harddisks can have bootblock-viruses like Ebola? That is, I dont remember anymore if they have a bootblock.

This is a really nasty virus. Maybe it is generating this behavior...

To EAB: Maybe its a good idea to create a forum to talk about Amiga viruses. EAB then would be the first Amiga board to have this kind of subject, in a special manner, in their threads.

Hmmm. Then I think that I erased the RDB of my hardfile with the "install bootblock" feature of VirusZ...

Doh!

Thank you, clauddio!
