  1. Hi all,

    I have a question I've been thinking about for a while about computer virus'

    Computer virus', by there nature have to be able to replicate themselves. Thus, a computer virus must store a copy of itself inside its own code... so my question is, how can this be exploited to discover if a virus has infected a certain operating system file.

    If you know of a link to information matching this please link me to it as I'm quite interested in reading into this a little more thoroughly.
