The Virus Library is dedicated to becoming one of the most detailed and resourceful websites with vast information on some of the most popular, and unreported, Trojan Horses, Viruses, Worms and other malicious malware found throughout the internet. Starting with less than 300 listings onsite back in February 2005 (formerly known as TrojanLibrary.com) , The Virus Library now has more than 2100 virus listings and grows continuously.
Learning is the main objective here. You will eventually become infected by a virus, albeit small or large. Chances are you are already infected with a dozen or so malicious scripts in your system, and you may never even know it until you thoroughly scan your entire computer. That is because not all viruses damage your computer, but merely copy your data, fill up your drive, or provide 24/7 access to a hacker 5,000 miles away.
In order to prevent the biggest and baddest viruses from getting into your system, consider one of the Free Antivirus Software programs recommended by The Virus Library. There’s hundreds of free softwares out there, but only those tested and proven to work by TVL will be listed on this website.
For those of you well versed in the internet and computer security industry, feel free to add to The Virus Library by sending a text-based email via the Contact page, or comment on the corresponding virus post you wish to contribute to.
Use common sense, experienced judgement, and you’ll have nothing to worry about. Thanks for using The Virus Library as your comprehensive Trojan Horse, Virus & Worm information resource.
A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer. The term “virus” is also commonly but erroneously used to refer to other types of malware, including but not limited to adware and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability. A true virus can spread from one computer to another (in some form of executable code) when its host is taken to the target computer; for instance because a user sent it over a network or the Internet, or carried it on a removable medium such as a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive.
