On the time complexity of computer viruses. Chouchane R. Chouchane, and Arun Lakhotia. Viruses are classified by the type of file or disk that the virus infects: Boot viruses attach themselves to floppy diskettes and hard drives. When a user boots from an infected floppy diskette or hard drive, the virus is activated and the computer becomes infected.

The virus spreads to other floppy diskettes as they are used on the system. Application viruses spread from one application to another on the computer.

Each time an infected application program is run, the virus takes control and spreads to other applications. Macro viruses spread through documents, spreadsheets, and other data files that contain computer macros. A macro is a small, self-contained program that is embedded directly within a document or spreadsheet file.

Typically, macros are used to automate simple computer tasks such as summing a set of numbers in a spreadsheet. Modern macros are powerful enough to copy themselves between documents or spreadsheets. Script viruses infect other script files on the computer. Script viruses, which are written in high-level script languages such as Perl or Visual Basic , gain control when a user runs an infected script file.

A typical computer virus works as follows: First, the user runs infected program A. Program A immediately executes its viral logic. The virus locates a new program, B, that it thinks it can infect.

The virus checks to see if the program is already infected. If program B is already infected, the virus goes back to locate another program to infect. If it is not already infected, the virus appends a copy of its logic to the end of program B and changes program B such that it, too, will run the malicious logic.

The virus then runs program A so the user does not suspect any malicious activities. Viruses can be written in numerous computer programming languages including assembly language, scripting languages such as Visual Basic or Perl , C, C, Java, and macro programming languages such as Microsoft's VBA. Worms A worm is a computer program that exploits a computer network to copy itself from one computer to another.

The worm infects as many machines as possible on the network, rather than spreading many copies of itself on a single computer, as a computer virus does. Usually, a worm infects or causes its code to run on a target system only once; after the initial infection, the worm attempts to spread to other machines on the network. Because computer worms do not rely on humans to copy them from computer to computer, they can spread much more rapidly than computer viruses. The first computer worms were written at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center in to understand how self-replicating logic could be leveraged in a corporation.

A bug, however, in the worm's logic caused computers on the Xerox network to crash. Xerox researchers had to build the world's first "antivirus" solution to remove the infections. In the "Internet" worm spread itself to roughly 6, machines 10 percent of the Internet at the time.

More recently, worms such as Melissa, ExploreZip, and LoveLetter have captured the attention of the public and the media due to their vast ability to spread over the Internet. These worms, collectively, produced millions of copies of themselves, and caused millions—some say billions—of dollars of damage.

The typical computer worm works as follows: The user unknowingly runs a worm program. The worm accesses a "directory" source, such as an e-mail address list, to obtain a list of target computers on the network.

The worm sends itself to each of the target computers. A user on a target computer receives a copy of the worm in e-mail, unknowingly runs the worm e-mail attachment, and starts the process over again.

Some worms, like the Internet worm of , automatically connect to target computers and use a "back door" to install and run themselves on the target without human intervention.

Like viruses, computer worms can be written in assembly language, scripting languages, macro languages, or in high level languages like C, C, or Java. The Trojan Horse Trojan horses are software programs that are designed to appear like normal computer programs, yet, when run, can cause some type of harm to the host computer. Most often, Trojan horses either steal information such as passwords or files from the computer or damage the contents of the computer by deleting files.

Because Trojan horses do not attempt to replicate themselves like viruses or worms, they are placed into their own class of computer threat. Like viruses and worms, Trojan horses can be written in virtually any computer language.
