Technical Details


This is an encrypted macro virus. It contains 21 macros: CUS, EOP, ESA,
NIZ, PLT, WEV, CROM, CUST, ESAA, INFO, MESSA, WATCH, BEEPER, README,
AutoExec, AutoOpen, FileOpen, FileSave, FileSaveAs, TheVWarning, POO.


The virus infects the system on opening an infected document – it copies
this document with new name THEVWARN.ING to Word Startup-Path and
User-Dot-Path. As a result the virus will activate each time Word will
start (Word reads and loads templates from Startup-Path and User-Dot-Path).
The virus also infects the global macro area. The documents get infection
on opening and closing.


Depending on the current time the virus hooks timer and sets on timer the
BEEPER macro. It also runs the OOP macro (it is renamed POO) that on
pressing Alt-Ctrl-Shift-K is runs the TheVWarning macro. TheVWarning macro
in one minute runs the WATCH macro. The WATCH macro renames the macros:


OEX – AutoExec
OOP1 – AutoOpen
EOP – FileOpen
ESA – FileSave
ESAA – FileSaveAs
NIZ – Organizer
CROM – ToolsMacro
PLT – FileTemplates
CUS – ToolsCustomize
CUST – ToolsCustomizeToolbar
WEV – ViewToolbars

The BEEPER macro beeps and displays the MessageBox:

I am so sorry. I do not mine it to disturb You.
But maybe … there is something that You have to do!

The MESSA macry displays the message:

THE ‘V’ WARNING MESSAGE
Sorry to interrupt You. I think You are tired,
because You have worked until midnight.
so I suggest You to go to bed now and
tomorrow You could work harder than this day.
