    Name: WM97/Pri-AE
    Type: Word 97 macro virus
    Date: 24 July 2002

    At the time of writing Sophos has received just one report of
    this virus from the wild.

    WM97/Pri-AE will attempt to use Microsoft Outlook to send copies of the current document to all entries in the address book. The email will have the following characteristics:

    Subject line: Message From <username>
    Message body: This document is very Important and you've GOT to read this !!!

    On 25 December WM97/Pri-AE inserts a random number of shapes into the currently open document and also edits autoexec.bat, adding code to format the hard drive on the next reboot.
