    Date: 10 June 2002

    Sophos has received several reports of this virus from the wild.

    Description:

    XM97/Pathetic-D is an Excel 97 macro virus that replicates using
    a file called Book1.xls in the XLSTART folder.

    The virus appends the text "@echo T'as été mordu par... Le bec
    du Saumon " to C:\autoexec.bat and on any day in May it will
    close the active workbook.
