Brief Description 

    

Panther.N is a macro virus that reaches computers inside an infected Word document with a  Doc extension. From there it corrupts the Word's global template ( NORMAL.DOT file), spreading the infection to all Word documents created using the template.

The effects of Panther.N are not  considered destructive, as its main aim is to spread to other cpomputers in an infected Word document through the usual means used by viruses.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Panther.N does give any clear indication that is has reached or infected a computer.
