|Detection updated on:||May 4, 2000|
Bridge.A is a macro virus that reaches computers in an infected Word 97 document with a DOC extension. From there it infects Word’s global template (NORMAL.DOT file) and spreads to all the Word files generated with this template.
Bridge.A does not carry out any destructive actions on the computers it infects, as its only aims are to spread and disable the antivirus protection incorporated in Word.
Bridge.A is very difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate that it has infected a computer.
