Locale.A is a macro virus that reaches computers in an infected Word document. From there, it infects Word’s global template (NORMAL.DOT file) infecting all the Word documents opened on the affected computer from then on.
Locale.A does not pose a threat to the affected computer, as it does not carry out any destructive actions. Its only aim is to infect as many Word documents as possible.
Locale.A is difficult to identify, as it does not display any warnings or messages that indicate that it has infected a computer.
