Mostly of our computers are the target of virus programs at all time. All might have got tensed and lost data, time,money and other indirect losses due to these threats. Without knowing even the victims these white collar criminals are creating virus and spreading the virus causing lot of losses to the unknown users of computers.I will do any thing,if they are caught red handed. What do you think about these programmers?

Some of the best stand a chance to be hired by large MNCs to be their programmers. It is a crime that sometimes pays. It is a way to challenge the key programmers from Microsoft or other security firms. Some of them target the major loopholes in MS Windows application and only in a crisis will MS work on a patch asap. Nonetheless, these people will have to take note of the potential problems that they are creating to bring about attention.

But there are less possibilites for them to identify themselves as the virus creators and if they do so, then they may have to meet some problems. But they will never succeed in the other things in their life as a result of their ill doings.But most of the users are against the anti virus software companies only in this issue.They seems first creating the virus and then selling the removal tool after few days.Thanks for your response.

I don't think that they will do it for fun as they can not say as they are the source of such virus to any one.But earlier, they might have been created only for fun, before the anti virus software vendors start selling their products.Just money making business.No one can do anything them, even if we know about them.Thanks for your response.

I think some people think it was a fun to create virus but it was really a big problem for others. I feel that we should be careful about virus we should check that virus will not enter our computer. I saw many kinds of virus but all the virus works on windows only there was virus created for linux and other operating systems.

Yes..Though I have not any experience with linux, I have heard from many of my friends that these virus can not do anything with the linux. But unfortunately it seems this OS is not supporting many software applications as like windows is doing. Why they are not creating for linux? May be due to the least number of users when compared to the windows users.There will not be much profit for the anti virus software companies if they concentrate in creating the virus/anti virus software for linux,I think.sorry for the delayed reply and thanks for your informative response.

I think virus is the son of the man who sell the safe-software.They want to earn more money by sells its services and software,but no suitable reason and most person don't mean the safe-software is important ;maybe at that moment the safe-software doesn't sells well;so they create a news virus ,let's fly by download or unknown ways.The virus effects most computer users ,let's lose date ,money and others.Fews weeks later ,the team who made the virus says,one kind of his own safe-software could kill the virus easily.So,more and more person by his software ,he take his goal,lots money he got.

I am also having the same opinion as like you and they might be the source for such virus.Though we know about them, as we don't have any proof for their ill-doings, we can not ever accuse them for this.As you told, if nothing is affected in our computer , then why are we going for anti virus software?That's why at first they are creating and spreading the virus and after few days. 'their team" is finding the removal tool for such virus after 'working hard"..Internet is always meant for the cheaters...Sorry for my delayed reply and thanks for your response.

For some people, it's out of fun. I think they have enjoyment - not necessarily of destroying someone else's computer - but it's a talent that they have, and it's a challenge to find new ways to get into things. And it probably makes them happy. As sick as that sounds, I think it's enjoying for them to be able to mess around with someone else's data. A disgusting hobby, I know. These people need to find some other way to put their talents to good use. but it's probably really interesting to them to find new ways to change codes or play with C++... and it's something THEY can do, that not everyone else can. *shrugs* Those who actually destroy data, though, or try to get into your personal info, need help. It's either out of hatred or frustration, or they're trying to gain something they DON'T have - money, maybe? Valuable information? Who knows. Either way, it's definitely a negative habit.

Of course, all you have stated might be true. If they divert their knowledge to develop some other software so that it can be used by all, they can proudly tell about it in addition to the earnings. Now , though they are highly knowledged, they can never tell others that they are responsible for such virus and they will never be appreciated for that for their work.Also hereafter no one can control such people as some of the anti virus software vendors are said to be the source for such creations.Thanks for your response and sorry for my delayed response.

One thing for sure, they are definitely very intelligent people. Why would a person want to damage the data on a pc hundreds of miles away ? Now think about this. If there are no viruses, there is no need for antiviruses. So is it possible that the show is actually sponsored by the companies selling the antivirus? Who knows....

I'll try to be as polite as possible because if I said what I really think, mylot would probably delete it anyway: I think they need to find something to do with their life. I'm sure they have equipment they paid alot of money for. How would they like it if someone destroyed all of it? In fact, if someone in their own family accidently knocked it over breaking it. Would they get angry at them and expect them to pay for it? I'll bet they would. So imagine how we feel to know someone is doing it on purpose, and for what, laughs? What do they get out of it? That's what I want to know.
