Sophos Virus Screenshots

For those of us who don't manage to get our computers infected with viruses, anti-virus software maker Sophos.com's Virus Screenshots are pretty eye-opening. Click thumbnail to get a description. My favorite was the W32-Mimail-A virus which apparently gives you a ::cough:: PayPal "verification" window.

Sophos' Glossary of Terms — with a list with links to definitions — is elegant and useful. Note, for instance, the links to:

  • Macintosh file virus
  • Macintosh worm
  • Macromedia Flash infector

… and the Sophos virus analyses page.

Well done.
