Definition: macro virus

A virus that is written in a macro language and placed within a document. Viruses have to be "run" in order to do things. When the document is opened and the macro is executed, commands in the macro language do the destruction or the prank. Thankfully, most viruses are harmless. Let's pray they stay that way! See Word macro virus, letter bomb, virus and macro.
