    Greetings every one. I think it would take a worm or a more devistateing attack than just a nuke. A mail bomber or similar programs wouldn't be able to unless it was a really weak system
    The people at http//www.neworder.bok.sk has posted an article on DoS attacks. The article contains:

    1. Intro
    2. Types of attack
    3. Prevention
    4. Response
    5. Some of DoS tools described
    6. Resources

    The full article on DoS attacks can be viewed at http://neworder.box.sk/tomread.php?newsid=453

    Hope this helps,

    A mailbomber cannot destroy a pc, it can be a nuisance as all it does is send you loads of e-mails usually abusive ones at that but to be honest its harmless but annoying.

    A nuker can simply knock you off line or take down a site if performed properly.

    Trojans if used to evil effect can be used to delete you most precious files and virii well these lil bastardos can really mess up ones computer.......

    Exclamation Virus

    Well, that depends on the type of virus that you've downloaded. Some may destroy everything on your hard drive, others may not even work because of all the new anti-virus software.

    Well, a nuker isn't gonna do much more then knock you off-line, although most nukers don't work anyway, heh.
    Mail bombs will just piss you off and screw up your e-mail server, but I don't see them doing any real damage.
    The only sorta things that can really nail you are virii...the more insidious kind can really trash your files and even muck up your HD to the point of no return...
    Thus, best tips would be don't download anything questionable, go get a good virii scanner, and make sure you have back-up disks.
    hope this helps
