Me and Viruses
Since the MS-DOS days, I've always wanted to know how things work insidemainly how the operating system works. Therefore, when I received a copy of my first computer virus book, it was the starting point for all three members of 29A; it was like a miracle to me. The book explained procedures of advanced DOS viruses that dug around the entire operating system. Thanks to viruses, I've learned everything I know about the MS-DOS operating system. Later, when I started to examine the Win32 platform, it seemed a logical result to write a virus in order to hone my knowledge. In my opinion, there's nothing like studying viruses to learn the target system. For similar reasons, I enjoyed writing the NT rootkit and exploring the art of reverse engineering.
