Virus information (VB script)

Visual Basic(VB) Script

VB Script viruses are becoming a real threat. The original intention of Microsoft is to include a powerful and easy to use language that can easily access the resources in the Windows system (98 / NT). VB Script is in human readable form and so it is easy to understand. Thus it invites lots of ' less technical ' virus writers to invade the territory.

The first generation of VB Script viruses are those that embedded in the HTML pages and spread through the Internet. The prevalent VB Script viruses usually spread by sending mails, together with an infected script, to users in the address book. Users who run the attached script will help the virus to spread.
