    Do you have any idea when this tutorial was written? I would have said about ten years ago, if not fifteen, because of references to very early viruses. There only seem to be a few indications that some minor updating has taken place since then (e.g. in the History)! Dr Alan Solomon went off to do other things many years ago!

    Personally, I reckon that you could happily leave 80% of what's written out, unless as historical MS-DOS examples, and concentrate on the stuff that's been around over the past year or two!

    The recent stuff makes you want to hide in bed. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Here is some fresher thinking from other sites:

    Trend Micro: Virus Primer (a different approach)

    SANS Reading Room: Papers on Malicious Code (some are quite technical)
