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.
