The Win32 API is very useful when it comes to making malicious code (for windows that is).


You're not kidding, the Windows API has functions that almost seemed designed for malicious use, such as SetWindowsHook, which by default is capable of injecting a new callback procedure into every single process running on the system. However, this is probably just my perception, this function has legitimate uses.

Microsoft are their own worst enemy, I think.

One thing that a younger generation may not remember or even know about is that Microsoft was forced to hand over their entire API, along with source code because they were called on it. Initially they kept those API calls secret, but eventually the anti-virus companies (whom use API hooks for proactive reasons) took them to court & it was forced to be made public. Er well, someone took them to court & then the APIs went public. Either way, you can read it for yourself :

I once wrote a malicious batch file back in the days of DOS to punish a script kiddie who was trying to hack the BBS I was running. It was so easy to just bait him into it, saying it was a hacking tool. It was a batch file that simply made every file in the OS hidden. Scared the crap out of him, as it was his father's computer, so maybe I actually discouraged him.

I wrote a bot for EVE online to automate mining. Recently I've made some cheats for minecraft with a custom client. In general though I disapprove of cheating and I haven't published anything I've made. I just play around a bit for a while with it then go back to playing as normal.

That's about as close to anything malware related I've made. I've got at least one friend who likes to make annoying batch and javascript scripts though.

The university I attended actually offers a Computer Security and Malware class. There has been some controversy about this too. Here is an article on Newsweek about the class and the instructor who teaches it.

I'd love to take that class. I mean what better way to learn how to prevent them than to learn how the best virus programmers out there make them. I don't see why AVG and these other companies don't hire his students. Especially since he's teaching them how to make viruses that penetrate the antivirus software. Hiring these students could greatly improve the performance of their antivirus software!
