    Mydoom was the fastest spearding email virus

    Blaster was to virus which left many organizations with lighter pockets

    Chernobryl.. <Not sure on the name> some years back.. was the one who gave Hware industry new lease of life.. (I guess that virus used to attack Hardware especially motherboard)

    Take Care

    Yup Chernobyl, PE_CIH, Win95/CIH, W95/CIH.1003, CIH.Spacefiller or WIN32/CIH

    It cost me a motherboard on April 26 1999, when I still did wares..
    The virus runs on 9x only and tries to overwrite the first 24 sectors of your harddisk (wich is repairable) and also tries to flash the bios of old pc's (p/pII) with Intel 430TX compatible chips.
    I had two options, get my bios fixed ( $$ ) or buy a new mobo that had 100Mhz mem, usb etc
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.
    When in Russia, pet a PETSCII.

    Get your ass over to SLAYRadio the best station for C64 Remixes !

    IMHO the best designed, therefore, worst virus was "magistr"............very clever.

    I guess you did not define your question too clearly?.....worst in cost, number of hits, or technicality?


    cheers
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
