    in general all virus are bad and it stinks that some people deside to create them beacuse they feel like destroying someone's things I think that all of them no matter how small or the worst and it will grow bader in the nere future when most things will run on computers ^^ we will all die from a hacker 0.0
    death and life are one and the same

    Viruses are bad. No argument there, but to get one on your machine, you must be either downloading something you shouldn't be downloading or executing a file without knowing truly what it is or who is actually sending it to you. Case in point, how do people get viruses?
    1. Download shady programs, malware, or media from a less than reputable source
    2. Execute programs or system commands because someone said to
    3. Make their computer easily connectible to the outside world

    The only section of people who get viruses who I truly feel sorry for are the tiny percentage of people whose machines are literally hacked into. That is most often not their direct fault. Everyone else falls into the "trying to get pirated material" group or "will open and/or execute anything" group. Both of which I have no sympathy (Well, I guess I do feel sorta bad for all the grandparents and soccer moms of the world). If someone offered you a free watch, but you just had to follow them down an alley, would you go? The answer should be no, but plenty of people take the digital equivalent to the "free watch" every day....and guess what...they get jacked up.

    i remember the ILOVEYOU thing. i heard my cousin complaining about it.

    anyone remember the Y2K scare? everyone thought it was going to be the end of the world. it was even in Metal Gear Solid 2 (although it said that the Y2K bug "Vaccinne" the gvmnt gave out was a government monitoring and censorship file)

    Its not always just this either... you could get a virus from browsing what seemed to be a " good " website. Malicious code is everywhere now and days you got to watch out for anything since people are getting smarter and coding more harmful code.

    I remember when the internet used to be so harmless

    THE RULES!

    I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!

    ILOVEYOU Virus came from our country.....And that Virus is so NOTORIOUS...You know that the one who makes it is only a College Student in AMA University here.....And when FBI discover it, they hire that man to work on FBI......Isn't that AMAZING?? But this only a HUMOR, don't make it seriously..
