What if a virus infected a virus? 'Frankenware' spotted by security firm

MSNBC Article - http://redtape.msnbc...y-security-firm

Basically the article will lead to new generations of virus that are purposely created to not interact with a computer or server until they come into contact with another virus. When the two or three or maybe even ten viruses come together each virus would create a link with the other to begin its attack. This type of virus could lay dormant for many years until all of the viruses that are part of the larger virus come together to create the super virus that would then cause mass infections across the entire computer world.

Nasty little thing isn't it?

This is the site where I learned so much about Malware and other types of viruses. I just read this article yesterday and it is a good one.

Win32.Worm.Rimecud is unique in his way, but it can be called a Super Virus or at least a hybrid one.

You can check daily all the articles here: http://www.malwarecity.com/
