How to Make a Computer Virus

Since the first self-copying, malicious computer program rolled its way into computers in 1986 the virus has been causing various issues. They can slow down the computer or corrupt data, show humorous or political messages, steal personal information such as credit card numbers and phone numbers, passwords and bank accounts, and spam users’ email addresses and email addresses, or even make the computer unusable.

A virus is a small piece of code that binds itself to various files and programs. It is then transmitted by infecting them, and then hiding until the affected program is executed. Typically, a virus starts by infecting the host application and then it spreads to other programs as well as files, mostly via e-mail. A virus that is successful can cause a lot of destruction and damage in very short periods of time.

It takes time and experience to create an infection on a computer, but anyone interested in computer programming will be able to learn how to do it. You can create a virus to learn about a programming language, or as a joke. Making a virus could be a great way to test the efficacy of an antivirus scanner.

This article will explain how to create a basic computer virus using Python however, the same technique can be used for any programming language. Python is a good programming language for beginners because it is easy to learn and relatively quick. Other programming languages, which can be compiled are usually preferred for viruses because they operate at an earlier level and therefore are more efficient.
