The Journal of Computer Virology and Hacking Techniques is dedicated to both the theoretical and experimental aspects of computer virology and hacking techniques. While the academic world focuses on scientific methodologies (conciseness, precision and rigor of the scientific method), the hacking world approach focuses primarily on achieving goals and therefore favors the results over the methods, often producing outstanding results with new, innovative and sometimes unorthodox methods.

  • Explores viral and antiviral computer technologies.
  • Focuses on proactive defense against attacks.
  • Encourages a harmonious synthesis of scientific and hacking approaches.
  • Previously known as the Journal in Computer Virology.
  • Strives to publish technical and scientific results promoting constructive research.
