Hackszine Screencast: HOW TO – Infect your computer on purpose
Check it out, Brian shows you how to infect your own computer to test virus software – nice screencast!
Last week, Hackszine fielded a reader request to come up with a way to infect a computer without letting too much heck break loose. This procedure was so much fun that we decided to use it for our first Hackszine screencast. Check it out for a little surprise near the end: I managed to sneak the test malware past the virus protection, but it kicked in as soon as I tried to actually run it.
