Brief Description 

    

Ekiam is a macro virus that infects Word documents, as well as the global template used by this program.

Ekiam uses the normal means of infection used by macro viruses. Firstly, it infects the global template. Then, it infects all the documents opened, closed or saved in the affected computer.

Ekiam also disables the macro antivirus protection incorporated in Word.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Ekiam is very easy to identify, as when it carries out its infection it changes the registered user of the operating system. However, it only carries out this action if the Spanish version of the operating system is installed.

If you have a Spanish operating sytem installed, you can check this by right clicking on the Mi PC icon that appears on the desktop. In the menu that appears, select the option Propiedades. A window will be displayed. The following text will appear in the section Registrado a nombre de: instead of the information you entered:
Maike you are
