How to Make a Computer Virus

Since the first nefarious self-copying code was unleashed back in 1986, computer viruses have been making your computers and devices sick. Some of them could brick your devices, while others slow down or steal your data. However, most of the time you can boot a virus off your device if you take action quickly.

A virus is a part of programming that, like the flu virus, is able to reproduce by attaching itself to files and programs that infect them. They then create copies of themselves. When a virus is infected by a program, it spreads to other devices and programs linked to the same networking. These viruses can cause all sorts of damage including stealing passwords, credit card details and deleting data, as well as damaging programs, and completely taking over your system.

Viruses can be transmitted from one computer to the next via emails and text messages. They can also spread via Internet downloads, file downloads, or social media scams. They can also infect smartphones and mobile devices through hiding in shady application downloads. Some viruses are playful in intent and effect, while others were designed with financial gain in mind.

In most countries, generating and propagating computer viruses is considered a crime. If you’re interested in knowing how to create a virus you can do it with Notepad and other tools. This is not for the faint of heart, but it is a fun method to test your coding skills. You’ll also need to decide what the virus will do after it has infected a system. This can range from displaying an error message, to deleting or corrupting data and spamming contacts of your friends.
