Goldfish is a simple macro virus which consists of two identical macros (Autoopen and Autoclose).
The virus activates by random, displaying a dialog box like this:
GoldFish I am the GoldFish, I am hungry, feed me.
After that, the user is not allowed to continue until he writes one of the following words: fishfood, worms, worm, pryme, core.
Goldfish was reported to be in the wild in several countries in spring 1997.
