Brief Description 

    

Seliuq.A is a macro virus that reaches computers in an infected Word document (a file with a DOC extension). Then it infects the Word template (NORMAL.DOT file) and quickly spreads to all the Word documents based on this template.

Seliuq.A does not have any destructive effects, but it easy to become infected by it as it can reach computers in an infected Word document through several means of transmission.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Word 97 does not display the warning messages that allow users to enable or disable the macros in Word 97 documents that contain them, when these are opened.
