I believe all my bog readers know batch file programming .If not i would suggest
you to google on this subject . So in this article we will see a very common and famous
batch file virus "Fork Bomb "
Disclaimer :I will not be held responsible for the actions of people who read
this tutorial. This tutorial is for educational purposes only.And does not in
anyway encourage illegal activity .
Fork Bombing :-
Fork bombing is nothing but calling a program by itself again and again with a infinite loop
and making the system to crash by popping up hundreds of windows on the screen.
Now copy paste the above code in a notepad and save it as fk.bat . Now when you run
this virus (program ) it will open new CMD (command prompt) again and again
(because of the loop command )till the computer crashes .So don't run this on your
computer if your so curious then try running it on a VM machine (virtual machine )
Note :- You can also open any other application like the explorer by entering "explorer" instead of "start" in the program .
