Brief Description 

    

Barisada.V is a  macro virus that carries out its destructive action on April 24 between two and three o’clock in the afternoon. At this time, depending on the answer users give to certain questions, Barisada.V will delete the content of the Excel spreadsheets that are open.

Barisada.V activates when an infected spreadsheet is closed or when the user passes from an open and infected spreadsheet to another. It will then infect all the Excel spreadsheets used on the infected computer.

It is easy to become infected with Barisada.V, as it reaches computers in an infected spreadsheet through the usual means used by viruses: e-mail messages, computer networks, CD-ROMs, Internet downloads, FTP, floppy disks, etc.

Visible Symptoms 

    

A clear indication that Barisada.V has infected a computer is that when a spreadsheet is opened, the title that appears is Microsoft Excel – HJB.XLS instead of Microsoft Excel – workbook 1.

On April 24 (between two and three o’clock in the afternoon), depending on the answer users give to certain questions, Barisada.V will delete the content of the Excel spreadsheets that are open.
