What is Macro virus •

 A type of computer virus that is encoded as a macro embedded in a document.  According to some estimates, 75% of all viruses today are macro viruses.  Once a macro virus gets onto your machine, it can embed itself in all future documents you create with the application.  In many cases macro viruses cause no damage to data; but in some cases malicious macros have been written that can damage your work.  The first macro virus was discovered in the summer of 1995. Since that time, other macro viruses have appeared.

How does it spread? When you share the file with another user , the attached macro or script goes with the file. Most macro viruses are designed to run, or attack, when you first open the file. If the file is opened into its related application, the macro virus is executed and infect other documents.  The infection process of the macro virus can be triggered by opening a Microsoft Office document or even Office Application itself, like Word, Excel. The virus can attempt to avoid detection by changing or disabling the built-in macro warnings, or by removing menu commands
