Virus on the Linux

Common viruses are created by Cracker for just kidding, help and could endanger people. Patches is one virus that was created to help (help the one hand, to the detriment of the parties). With the patch we can change a program that was originally “Unregister” or “Trial” to “Register” or “Full Version”. We return to the topic, of course, the virus is of the utmost we avoid. We are always anti-virus mengupdet us to survive with the virus. Trend Virus is very quickly depending on the toughness of the security system Operating System. Developing more viruses in Windows compared to other Operating Systems. Maybe because Windows is an Operating System that is very popular in the world and use a lot, so make the creators of viruses choose windows as the main container spread of virus.

Is there a virus that can develop in Linux? Questions are often in the catapult by beginners like me and you. The answer is very suitable is “yes”. Although with the advantages of Linux are free of viruses, you also know that the virus usually has. Exe while eksentesi. Exe does not apply to Linux itself. But the spread of Linux in the world has started to spread. We do not have to worry about it because the Linux kernel will always change as long as we continue our Linux mengupdet.

Virus in Linux can not say too much. Possible constraints that make a virus for Linux is because Linux kernel will always change if we are diligent in our Linux mengupdet. It made me very proud with Linux. If the virus has really spread of Linux, it is not too fatal.

    Interesting list dude, they say that the Viruses are not in the wild. I feel pretty safe without a scanner in Linux 🙂 I wonder how those in the list would infect.

    and btw, Linux has a hardened variant that use things like PaX. you could try that for extra safety

      thx dude.. for ur comment…

      i really love linux beacuse of that…
      i can’t imaged how those viruses can infect linux… you know that Linux Kernel can be change as long as it update…

      ok dude i will try PaX, but can i ask you? what’s Pax? sorry i’m newbie here…

    Yeah, it’s liberating. Particularly when every other computer around you seem to have a few viruses.

    I don’t have indepth info on PaX :(. But I know it randomizes address spaces among other things. It’s part of the hardened kernel. I use Gentoo linux, so it’s pretty easy to choose from a whole range of kernel types, I’m not sure how you could do that in … what distro do you use?

    • Newbie July 29, 2010 at 12:41 pm

      thx for info… this time, i’m using kubuntu… i get it from request in
      btw what GUI does Gentoo linux use…? Kubuntu’s GUI is KDE…

  3. gpcrackjack July 29, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Gentoo doesn’t have a default GUI, you can use Gnome, KDE, Xfce… or plain ol CLI 🙂 it’s very flexible. I use Gnome, I don’t like KDE much.

  4. gpcrackjack July 30, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    oh, lol you’re changing DEs like clothes.. I have been using Gentoo for about 8 months now… It killed windows completely. I don’t even have an XP installation now.

    • Newbie July 30, 2010 at 5:46 pm

      lol…. it’s me… i feel boring quickly…
      great, first time i meet someone who dont use XP anymore…
      actually, i want to use Gentoo… I do not have fast internet access… so i can’t download that large size of it…

  5. gpcrackjack July 31, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    Rest assured, I’m sort of like that too 🙂 Is the bandwidth or the speed the problem? you could leave it on overnight.

    • Newbie July 31, 2010 at 9:11 pm

      lol… i will stay overnight on my university bulding and go home at morning. the Gate will close at 10:00 Pm…

      actually, i’m scare againt ghost… woow, i don’t to image it…
      btw, what’s your name…?

  6. gpcrackjack July 31, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    🙂 You don’t have to be at the terminal, just set everything for download and go home. Come back later and get the files, I used to do that while back. I’m Amit, what’s your name? I don’t think it’s a good idea to use that nick while interacting with the linux community, some people are just jerks. … and ghosts don’t exist

    • Newbie July 31, 2010 at 9:58 pm

      all right amit.. nice to meet you.. i’m azar…
      oh, i get it… you mean, we can’t download some of large size with Console.
      if we want to go home, just pause them and leave…
      after that resume again,,, i understand the trick… am i right?
      unlucky kubuntu don’t has wget… i’m common with it…
      do you know anything else just like WGET on Kubuntu?

      lol, i have been scared ghost since i was child…
      it’s silly for you, but for me it’s just,,,, OMG i dont want image it…
