Technical Details

When an infected document is opened the virus copies itself to the global template. After this is done, it infects every opened document.

Beside replication, this virus adds three AutoCorrect entries. This causes that the words "genial", "geniale" and "genialt" is replaced with "genitalt", "genitale" and "genitalt" respectively.
