Metys (also known as Virus.MSWord.Metys) is a macro virus on Microsoft Word in Microsoft Windows.


When the virus is run, it appears to be a word document, but with a macro attached. On February 7, the virus triggers a game, if the user loses the game, then it sets a random password to the user's document and then closes it. It also edits the normal word template, to make the virus stop new documents. Thus, the user cannot access the document anymore, so the user's document(s) cannot be accessed. If the user makes a new document, it will be blank.
