Technical Details

When a document is closed, the appends the name and path of the active document, date, time and the contents of the document to a file "C:\Login.sys". The file is created if it does not exist.

Then the virus attempts to connect "\\HS_WORK\COMMON\STUDIENT\TEMP" network resource. If the connection is established, the virus moves the "C:\Logo.sys" file to first logical drive starting from "D:", where it can write. The file is renamed to "Archive.a##", where "##" represents a number between 10 and 50.

The virus replaces the "Tools/Macros" menu with a message box:

Macro function is not installed.
