Panther.A is a macro virus that reaches computers inside an infected Word file, using the 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.
Panther.A is not destructive but spreads easily and can arrive through any medium using a contaminated Word document.
Panther.A does give any clear indication that is has reached or infected a computer.
