How to Make a Computer Virus
Since 1986, when the first malicious code that copies itself was released computer viruses have caused your computers and devices sick. Some can brick your device, while others could slow down your computer and steal your data. In most cases, if you react quickly, you will be able to get rid of viruses from your device.
A virus is a type of programming that, like the flu virus, is able to reproduce by attaching itself to programs and files to infect them. They then create copies of themselves. When a virus is infected by a program, it spreads to other devices and programs attached to the same network. These virus can cause all kinds of damage. They can take credit card and passwords or erase information, corrupt programs or even take over your entire system.
Viruses can spread from one computer to another through emails and text. They can also propagate through Internet downloads, file downloads, or social media scams. They can also infect smartphones and mobile devices by hiding in shady application downloads. Some viruses have a playful nature and are designed to bring laughter as well as others are designed to earn money.
In the majority of countries, creating and spreading computer viruses is a crime. If you’re interested and want to know how to create a simple virus by using Notepad along with other tools. This isn’t for those who aren’t confident, but it’s an interesting way to test your coding abilities. You’ll need to determine how your virus will behave after it has infected your system. This could be anything from displaying a warning to deleting data or corrupting it, and even spamming the contacts lists of your friends.
