Brief Description 

    

Jakarta is a macro virus that is easy to recognize because it displays the following text D0EUNPAD94, v.2.21, (c) Maret 1996, Bandung, Indonesia, which moves across the Status bar in the Word window (versions 6.x and 7.x).

It reaches computers in an infected Word document, with a DOC extension. Then it infects the Word template (NORMAL.DOT file) and quickly spreads to all the Word documents generated with it.

Jakarta is not a dangerous virus, as it does not have any destructive effects. It simply displays the text mentioned above and infects Word documents and Word's global template (versions 6.x and 7.x).

Visible Symptoms 

    

The only visible symptom of Jakarta is the following text, which is displayed on the Status bar in the Word window (versions 6.x and 7x):

D0EUNPAD94, v.2.21, (c) Maret 1996, Bandung, Indonesia

This only happens when the infected document has been opened 23 times.
