Inexist is a macro virus that infects Word 95 documents, as well as the global template (NORMAL.DOT file), that this application uses.
Inexist only infects computers that have the French version of Word installed.
It is easy to become infected by Inexist, as it can reach computers through any of the means normally used by viruses: e-mail messages with infected attachments, computer networks, CD-ROMs, Internet downloads, FTP, floppy disks, etc.
Inexist is very difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate that it has infected a computer.
