Brief Description 

    

Nid is a macro virus that does not have any destructive effects, which affects Word documents and the global template used by this application.

Nid follows the infection routine normally used by viruses. First of all, it infects the global template. From there, it will infect all the documents opened, closed or saved on the affected computer.

Nid replaces the Key words in the summary tab of the properties of the infected documents with the following text:

  • BIOLORD BIO_M9

Visible Symptoms 

    

Nid is difficult to identify, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate that it has infected a computer.
