Here are a few examples of some viruses that are/were on the loose for awhile
This is the Limewire virus, it was huge at the time when Limewire was so massive for people to use to get their porn, music and movies. All with a lot of quite obvious other surprises that you don’t want to get along with one night in paris 😉 It’s the full thing here but you will need limewire to get the main things out of it, like Free Babes.exe 😀 With this virus it didn’t seem to be a thing that was going to be so huge, but when it did take off it really took off with the teenagers and all these things happened to their computer they found every single excuse except Limewire. As you can see there is a Keygen.exe as you can imagine is a keygen. There however, was a small problem with it. Because Limewire was so massive and was so widly used that the server for the keygen was flooded at all times of the day that the keygen was of no use. There were stories of the dev trying to sell the keygen list to someone but this was never confirmed properly.
This is the Blaster worm, thankfully the guy who gave this to me has the comments left in it. The blaster worm was used in 2010 a few to take down a few big targets. Chinese hackers were hired to smash american companies when shit started going down. Anyway it worked like this just put in human terms.
“What you want me to do something? Nah man I want to turn off now, man every time you start me up I’m just going to turn off again. Dude stop turning me on I’m just going to turn off in a minute.”
The blaster worm gave a warning of it’s going to shut down in 60 seconds. Now I know most people won’t be able to get it deleted in 60 seconds. If you could open task manager, processes and follow it to the folder and delete it then you were safe. Most people would panic when this happened and ended up taking their computers to a professional.
These are just two real world viruses that were big at their time.
I have the sources to some other cool ones aswell. BloodRed, massmailer and DoS tool, is pretty awesome. Ask if you want it. Also an IRCworm for people who want it. If you do ask you either need a valid reason and I mean valid. That or I just need to know you as a regular here.
There are a few if you ask for I will try to get my hands on for you.
