Hey, fellow techwizards. i will be a sophmore in high school this sept. I have to do a paper due nov. on viruses, what they are, how they are made, how to safeguard against, and how some of the first got started, etc. I would greatly appreciate any information you have to offer on any of these broad topics. Links, info, books, etc. thanks ahead of time.
Obviously we won't come out and give all the info for you....
Use google.com and search for "virus", "anti-virus", "sub7", "worms", and "trojans"
Also, go to these two major company sites for anti-virus. They have great info on viruses.
www.mcafee.com - www.norton.com
Look also for a guide/tutorial called "Black Book of Virus"
well at least he had ambition enough to type out a request, even get online and post it
