W97M.Opey.AZ is a variant of W97M.Opey.A, which infects Microsoft Word documents and templates.
Also Known As: Macro.Word97.Opey.ay, W97M/Opey.AZ
For most of the older varients anyone who gets it now deserves it.. like those who still get Hybris, or magjistr ..
It only take a nice variation on the code and the current def's are up the creek..
