Thread: Virus Whats The Point?.

  1. #1
    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.

    of course I would be concerned.... I just got my AV set back up last night after having to un-install it for some trouble shooting, no uploads or downloads for me for 2 weeks

    Better off if they be constructive with there bitterness and try and make some cash out of it

    I think most of the people who
    right viruses just want to prove
    to themselves and to some others
    that they have some kind of power
    and are UB3R-L33T-H4X0R5.



    They are actually just proving to us
    that they are losers who have no life.
