The most discriminating Viruses of world wide web the www

" VIRUS !!"

I challenge, you have heard this word more than thousands time. And if you are a beginner you might be feared of it. let talk a little more about it...

history says that the first virus ever detected was "creeper virus" in early 1970's. A computer infected by creeper virus display a message "i'm a creeper catch me if you can".

One more thing, the names of virus are really cool have a look:

CREEPER: it was detected on ARPANET. At BBN technologies it infected DEC PD P-10 computers running on TENEX os.



 ILOVEYOU: its property is similar to above. it also show a title message on the infected one. The worm propagated itself by sending out copies of the payload to the first 50 entries in the Microsoft Outlook address book (Windows Address Book). It also downloaded the Barok trojan renamed for the occasion as "WIN-BUGSFIX.EXE".


SQLSlammer: it's a network virus so it spreads itself very fast and  infected servers running Microsoft's SQL Server Desktop Engine.

MICHELANGELO:In 1991, the world waited and watched for the Michelangelo virus, a time bomb that bombed. Set to deploy on March 6 (Michelangelos birthday), the virus was designed to overwrite critical drive sectors, but it did little damage in reality.

MELISSA :Named after a lap dancer in Florida, the 1999 Melissa worm is considered the first destructive mass-mailer targeting Microsoft customers. The worm was programmed to spread via Microsoft Word- and Outlook-based systems, and the infection rate was startling

And many more are being created....
