Brief Description 

    

Thus.DE is a macro virus that affects both PC and Macintosh computers. It usually reaches systems in an infected Word document.

Thus.DE has no damaging effects, but it affects the user’s work with Word:

  • It infects files with a DOC extension and the Word global template.
  • It prevents Word macros from being accessed and disables the program’s macro antivirus protection.
  • If it detects the presence of a virus belonging to the Thus family in the computer, it will close the Word window.

Visible Symptoms 

    

If Thus.DE detects any other variant of the Thus family in the infected computer, it closes the Word window.
