Brief Description 

    

VMPCK1.DD is a macro virus that displays a series of dialog boxes on screen. Its payload consists of  substituting the character 19 in infected documents with the text "CAPut!". This action happens one in every 100 times.

Like most macro viruses, it reaches computers in an infected Word document, with a DOC extension. This document then infects  Word's global template (NORMAL.DOT file) and spreads its infection to all the Word documents generated with it.

Visible Symptoms 

    

It is easy to determine if VMPCK1.DD has infected your computer because:

  • When trying to access the Templates and complements, Macro - Visual Basic Editor  and Macro options in the Tools menu in Word, the virus displays a fake error message. The message displayed is:

    Word Basic Err=7

  • When accessing the Help: (?) menu and choosing the About Microsoft Word option, the following message is displayed:

    CAPut! by --=¦¦N¡c0t¡N ¦¦=-- (c)1998

  • It substitutes the number 19 with the word CAPut! in the documents it infects.
