A computer virus is a type of malware that, when executed, replicated by inserting copies of itself into other computer programs, data files, or the boot sector of the hard drive sector of the hard drive. However, not all viruses carry a destructive payload or attempt to hide themselves¬ the defining characteristic of viruses is that they are self replicating computer programs which install themselves without the user's consent. Virus writers use social engineering and exploit detailed knowledge of security vulnerabilities to gain access to their host's computing resources. The vast majority of viruses (over 99%) target systems running Microsoft Windows employing a variety of mechanisms to infect new hosts, and often using complex anti¬detection/stealth strategies to evade antivirus software. Motives for creating viruses can include seeking profit, desire to send a political message, personal amusement, to demonstrate that a vulnerability exists in software, for sabotage and denial of service, or simply because they wish to explore artificial life and evolutionary algorithms.

Q21. How do virus writers gain access to computing resources ?
By using social engineering.
By affecting computing networks
By executing malwares
By employing a variety of mechanisms

Q22. The vast majority of viruses evade antivirus software by:

exploiting detailed knowledge of security vulnerabilities

Q23. What is one of the motives of creating viruses ?
To corrupt hard drives
To exploit security knowledge
