Malware Museum opens

News by Roi Perez

Mikko Hypponen, CRO of F-Secure, has opened his very own ‘Malware Museum', showing 78 types of malware which all date from the 1980s and 1990s.

Attracting more than 100,000 visitors since it launched four days ago, some of the software on display simply shows an animation or messages, while some invited the infected user to play a game.

The versions online have all been stripped of their destructive capabilities, but show the messages they would have displayed within emulator windows.

The entire collection is viewable here.
