Technical Details

This is a stealth macro-virus. It contains eighteen procedures in one module
“xSebelas”: xSebelasInit, AntiMakro, DisplayPath4, Mcopy, ShowForm, FileOpen,
AutoOpen, ViewVBCode, AutoExec, AutoExit, ToolsMacro, FileTemplates,
FormatStyle, ReFresh, AutoClose, FileExit, ToolsOptions, and HelpAbout.

The virus infects the global macros area upon opening an infected document
(AutoOpen), and infects other documents upon opening and closing (AutoOpen and

documents in the MS Word start-up directory: these documents have the names

The virus turns off the Word virus protection (the VirusProtection option),
hides the Tools/Macro menu (stealth), and blocks Visual Basic editor

window with a picture. The same dialogue window is displayed upon entering the
Help/About menu.
