Button is a macro "joke" virus that seemingly adds a harmless button on Excel.

Payload

Button is a harmless virus. It adds a little smiley face button to the taskbar of Excel. The text when roll over on says "Don't press this button". Cute, but the button does absolutely nothing if pressed, hence trying to take up space on the taskbar, which is the only thing the virus does harmful.
