good computers.

Like what is the point of it what can it achieve a person
it doesn’t give people money from going it

and can a virus be used for good

often virus writers see it as a challenge, a chance to show off their good programming.

if they can write a virus which can get into millions of computers, past all forms of computer security then thats something.

i dont think a "virus" can be used for good. virus is bad hence the name. a good virus is just a good program. this can be interpreted a lot of ways, but thats the way i see it.
i mean say you had a "virus" which spread and all it done was defragment someones drive. i guess it could be classed as a virus because it spreads without the users consent, but it doesnt do damage, its actually doing good. just depends on the persons interpretation of a virus.
