Stick out tongue LOL ... Recent virus Win32.Polipos uses 15-year-old technique =D


That is really TOO much!

Some malicious coder decided to use a technique for a Win32 virus which could as well have occurred on an A500 back in 1989: self-modifying code!
RNC Copylock made use of this too from time to time.

Feels like golden Amiga times.

SMC was very popular on both the C64 and the Spectrum - way before Amiga times.

Self modifying viruses have also been around on the PC for a long time (since the DOS ages)
