Graham Cluley, Senior Technology Consultant at Sophos, reveals the identities of the people who have written some of the most troublesome viruses in history, and the profile of the typical virus author. He describes the different levels of damage that viruses can cause, including the impact on corporate confidentiality and credibility.
In the early days, virus writers communicated with each other via Bulletin Board Systems, then progressed to electronic newsletters where virus writers formed gangs. They then set up websites that distributed thousands of viruses. Today over 75,000 computer viruses are in existence, and up to 1000 new viruses are released each month.
