I dare someone to put their magnets on their motherboard's friends until it boots with a message like this one below:

BIOS not found.

Sadly, my motherboard doesn't have many friends.

What about CIH?!  Easlily one of the most frightening viruses in computer history, in my opinion.  It was even able to infect the BIOS of the system's motherboard, rendering evrything useless.  That isn't scary enough for you?

Actually this virus is the scariest of them all. The Virut virus:

As a PC tech there is no way to remove this entirely. A reformat/reinstall needs to be done.

Considering that file is from a .no address and ends in .pdf, I'm not completely sure anyone should click on that.

Humans should be in the list too, not only are they viruses, like Agent Smith said, they also help spread viruses everywhere.

stuxnet isnt a mere piece of malware, it's a cyberweapon

I was at a northrup grumman cybersecurity conference and the man who was talking had actually looked at the source code.  He said it was on a level only achieved by the premier governments in cyber warfare.  He found french in the source code so he speculated that it was from france, but he wasn't too sure.

Apparently, this had infected over 50 percent of the computers in iran, and it was only detected due to a small flaw, it is still undefeatable

Isn't skynet the official name of "the cloud?" Makes sense to me :D

Google already has it, "the public" doesn't care. Not scary.
