WordMacro/Polite is a simple macro virus which asks user every time
whether it should infect files or not. When files are saved, the
virus displays a question:
Shall I infect the file ?
When files are closed, Polite displays a dialog like this:
I am alive!
Otherwise the virus just replicates.
Polite is not common, but the Trend antivirus from Taiwan (also resold
as Intel Lanprotect and PC-Cillin) has had several false alarms with it.
