The Malware Museum

Mikko Hypponen

The Malware Museum is a collection of malware programs, usually viruses, that were distributed in the 1980s and 1990s on home computers. Once they infected a system, they would sometimes show animation or messages that you had been infected.

A quick presentation on Virus History by Daniel White at Project Cyber Virus, held on May 5th, 2015 at Swissnex San Francisco. In 2004, Daniel White’s computer was infected with the Sasser worm, a fast-spreading autonomous worm that made millions of computers around the world reboot continuously. Fascinated by the concept of malware, he spent the following years learning everything he could about the subject, from general malware news to specific details of every virus, becoming a self-taught...

Malware Example: CASCARE.COM *CASCARE.COM - upon invocation, CascadeScare (tm) will become resident. After a brief pause, the characteristic rat-a-tat sound of the Cascade virus and its nifty falling letters effect will be seen. This will continue intermittently, for as long as CascadeScare is resident. If the computer is in graphics mode, only the rat-a-tat sound effect will be noticed.

Malware Example: JERSCARE.COM *JERSCARE.COM - upon invocation, JerusalemScare (tm) becomes resident. After a short period of time - about a minute on most systems - Jerusa- lemScare will effect the characteristic Jerusalem virus system slowdown and scrolling black window effect on the left side of the monitor.
