History of Linux viruses

Posted on Monday, November 29 2010 @ 12:15:28 CET by

Neowin takes a look at the history of Linux viruses, you can read it over here.
The cracker group VLAD wrote the first Linux virus named Staog. The virus took advantage of a flaw in the Kernel that allowed it to stay resident on the machine and wait for a binary file to be executed. Once executed the virus would attach itself to that file. Shortly after the virus was discovered the flaw was fixed and the virus quickly became extinct. VLAD was also responsible for writing the first known virus for Windows 95, Boza.
