Build your own Windows worm in minutes
Really simple-to-use tools, available to everyone!
In this brief video (3' 14'’), from O’Reilly website, Chad Russell constructs a simple computer worm using one of the well known tools for malware building, “Internet Worm Maker Thing”.
Internet Worm Maker Thing is a free tool by which wich can make many kinds of malware and worms with the ability of infect victim’s drives, files, shows message, disable anti-virus software and much more.
The VBS script can be compiled into executable in order to elude antivirus.
Frightened? Consider that there are a lot of similar tools, for example:
DelMe Virus Maker
DelMe Virus Maker has more features than Internet Worm Maker Thing and a more simple UX.
The generated malware can be saved in VBS format (and after compiled with other tools).
JPS Virus Maker
Similar to previous tools, but with some additional ‘offensive’ features.
And this tools are freely available on internet, with just a simple search on google: any script kiddie (or angry employee) can download one of this application and turn into a threat.
So, update you antivirus/antimalware, always!
