Know Your Malware: Sops Removal
Sops, also known as Lzo, is a macro virus designed to infect Microsoft Excel spreadsheet documents. The parasite is distributed through already infected Microsoft Excel workbooks. Once the user opens such a workbook, the virus changes the Microsoft Excel status bar text and modifies currently opened documents. It may also display a certain message. Sops doesn't carry any destructive payload. It runs every time the user launches Microsoft Excel.
