SYDNEY - Sophos, the world's leader in network-ready anti-virus
software, has announced the discovery of the first macro viruses to
target Visio drawings.
VM5/Radiant-A (also known as VIS5/RadiantAngels) and
VM5/Unstable-A (also known as V2KM/Unstable, Visio2000.Unstable and
Visio2K.Unstable) are being analysed by Sophos virus researchers in
the Sophos virus labs. Neither has been reported from the wild, and
they are not yet considered a significant threat.
Detection for these viruses will be included in a future version
of Sophos Anti-Virus.
Microsoft acquired Visio Corp, which develops business drawing
