How Viruses Eat Up Your Computer Then And Now

The I love you virus, the Agent.btz, and the Conficker Virus are three of the most dangerous computer viruses that have wreck havoc in most of the world. The conficker for instance has created a massive botnet army of remotely controlled computers designed to steal financial data and other sensitive information.

Now, let’s focus on the Stuxnet, the first ever virus designed chiefly to destroy in the physical, and not in the virtual world. That is what makes it one of a kind. What makes it more controversial is… rumors have it that the US had to do with the testing and development of this virus which is believed to be the most notoriously crafted virus the world has ever known.

Prepare to be shocked! Watch the video, an infographic which dissects the nature and ramifications of Stuxnet, the first weapon made entirely out of code. It was produced for HungryBeast, an Australian TV program, on Australia’s ABC1. Motion Graphics and Direction by Patrick Clair patrickclair.com. Written by: Scott Mitchell. Production Company: Zapruder’s Other Films.
