A virus that is successful could cause a great deal of destruction and damage within an extremely short period of time.

Creating a virus requires time and knowledge, but anyone who is interested in computer programming could learn how to create a virus. You can make a virus to find out about a programming language, or even as a joke. A virus can be used to test the effectiveness of an antivirus scanner. effectiveness.

This article will demonstrate how to create a simple computer virus using Python however, the same technique is applicable to any programming language. Python is a suitable programming language for beginners as it is a breeze to learn and relatively fast. Other programming languages which can be compiled, are generally preferred by viruses since they operate at the lower levels and therefore are more efficient.
