P97M/Corner.A

This is a multi-partite virus infecting MS Project and MS Word files. In the first case the virus is spread in the “deactivation” project, in the second one when the document is closed. In Word the virus switches off the macro notice and forbids the entry Tools/Macros in menu. In the main template the virus loads itself into the "class" module. At the end of the code it contains the following commentary:

I never realized the lengths I'd have to go
All the darkest corners of a sense
I didn't know
Just for one moment
hearing someone call
Looked beyond the day in hand
There's nothing there at all
