Macro Virus - Definition

A Macro Virus is a computer virus which affects Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel or similar applications. It causes a sequence of actions to be performed automatically either when the application is launched or when something else triggers it. Macro viruses are the most common type of viruses as many popular software applications allow macros to be run. Many of the security holes in the macro languages were closed with the release of Office 2000, and since then macro viruses have not been as much of a threat.
