Keeping up with macro viruses

Keeping up with macro viruses

After my comments last week about the proliferation of Word macro viruses, Susan Lesch wrote back with some suggested documents to learn more about this mess:

a. "The WildList," by Joe Wells. Originally just covering PC viruses, it was updated last year to help Macintosh users track macro viruses.

b. "Macro Virus List" includes over 500 macro viruses, including both those found only in labs as well as in the "wild."

c. "Who Writes This Stuff?", by Sarah Gordon. Explains a bit about virus-writing experiments and why they may not be a good idea.
