Class.H is a macro virus that infects Word files and the NORMAL.DOT global template used by this application.
The effects of Class.H vary depending on a number that the virus generates at random. If the number generated is 49, it displays a message on screen: Gerbil by virus.
Class.H is also a polymorphic virus, which makes it more difficult to detect than normal macro viruses.

On other occasions Class.H displays the following message on the screen: Gerbil by virus.
