I've taken apart viruses for the following computers:
- 5 (Atari ST)
- 2 (MS-DOS)
- 3 (Windows)

The Atari ST was especially interesting. It felt like an archaeological dig into forgotten history. It was interesting to see how different virus programmers made their creations work.

I figured out how XP AntiVirus 2009 worked, and also discovered that it was able to do a stealth install via Firefox on a Windows Box due to the fact XP's SP3 essentially replaced Firefox's depandancy on Sun's Java VM and replaced it with dependacies of .Net Framework. :evil:

I also traced the domain for XP AntiVirus down to an address on Queens Road, Belize City, Belize.

When There's No There to get to, I'm so There!
