Ways of spreading viruses

How are viruses and, in particular, the Win95.CIH virus spread? It is generally believed that the main path is the Internet. Other viruses cause a lot of controversy about the distribution paths (spread with games, via floppy disks, etc.). In fact, any viruses are highly democratic in their habitat. The main channel for spreading viruses is the channel through which the necessary information is transmitted most intensively. What is this information: games or necessary programs – the virus doesn’t care. Continue reading

Viruses are serious, and Win95.CIH is not alone

Currently, there are quite a few viruses that destroy the contents of CMOS. For example, the stealth virus FindMe (stealth virus – “invisible virus”, like the stealth bomber), the destructive action of which is expected on May 23. Or another virus, V.789, the 14th day of every odd month (May, July, etc.) destroys the master boot record of the hard disk and destroys the contents of the CMOS. Continue reading
