Brief Description 

    

Title.A  is a macro virus that triggers its payload on July 30, June 20 and May3, assigning a password to infected documents. By doing this, it prevents users from opening Word documents.

Like most macro viruses, Title.A disables the macro antivirus protection incorporated in Word.

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

Visible Symptoms 

    

There is no clear indication that Title.A has reached your computer.

However, when it activates  (on July 30, June 20 and May 3), it asks users to enter a password in order to access infected documents.
