Why is it that people feel the need to create VIRUS software is it just people with pathetic insignificant lives and nothing better to do.
As an experiment I disabled my antivirus auto detect for a little over a week (very brave or just stupid?) only to find that I had accumulated 86 viruses 40 of which were the same and had been generated from a single file.
It is appalling how many sad people there are writing this stuff with no clear goal as this stuff could not possible do any harm, luckily I never got infected with the bad viruses that can do real damage, only menial stuff and backdoor Trojanís which my firewall block for me (Thanks Norton).
Why donít these people do something constructive instead like produce antivirus software or firewalls (little bit of irony there).
Clearly there is no real gain in producing most of this stuff so it makes me wonder is it just the companies marketing prevention software that create these things to force you to buy there products.
NOTE: I would not advise anyone to copy my experiment as there is some nasty stuff out there and you may not be as lucky as I was.
