Technical Details

Daniel is a simple macro virus which adds this text as keywords and summary of infected documents, viewable from menu File/Properties/Comments:

Daniel_Stone
        All information should be free.

Do note that when F-Secure anti-virus products disinfect a document infected by Daniel, the above words will still be visible in the summary - even though the document is now clean and safe to be used.

Virus also contains this text in comments:

REM You've reached! Here is the virus. Enjoy.
  REM This is the Word_Macro_Virus_Daniel_1F - Beta International Version.
  REM Please Support the Virus Concept. Have a nice Day! (BR/US)

Otherwise it just spreads.
