The Known PC Viruses: Recognition, Analysis and Cure

  • Alan Solomon


The study of viruses is a very new field, and the terminology has not settled down yet. File viruses are also called “link” viruses and “parasitic” viruses, for example. But the worst confusion is in naming the viruses. The same virus is rediscovered several times, and given a name by each discoverer. In this chapter, I try to give all the common names for each virus, but the confusion will always persist.
