Technical Details


WM/Outlaw.A is a macro virus, that binds itself to keyboard in a such way that the global template will be infected when the space bar is pressed and the active document will be infected when E key is pressed.

The virus activates its payload at January, 20th. At this time the virus will insert the following text to the active document:

  You are infected with
    A virus from Nightmare Joker

WM/Outlaw also drops an WAV file, "LAUGH.WAV" to the Windows directory and plays it.
