it's always funny to make a virus patch that simulates the virus for a little while before letting the user in on the joke :smile:

Thanks for the heads up on this! :laugh: I was wondering though, how effective is a properly set up firewall is in preventing this?

Even Zonealarm Pro? It monitors outgoing traffic as well, and will tell you if any program is trying to get access to the 'net.

Awesome post man!
I love talking about viruses, what they do, and how they spread. It's pretty damn cool if you think about it.

Sometimes I get bored and infect myself with the latest threat virus. Just to see how it works. I just wish I new C++ alot better.

Yeah, wouldn't the JPG file have to request thru the firewall to get back out...? Hhhhmmmmm......... Seems logical, but does it hold any "water".... (It was a moat joke...) <SmerK>
