I would suggest c#.

If you need free the compiler and .net are free from microsoft and you can use the SharpDevelop as an IDE

http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SD/

It is also easier to learn than C++ (the memory is managed which means no pointers which also means much easier to learn). It is also a much more rapid development tool than C++.

:mb_yeahthat::

c# is my next beast to battle. let's see if i can remember any of my coding skill. :?

IMO, writing a virus isn't very dangerous, unless you're intending it to be so...technically you can use "viruses" for very useful operations. maybe you wouldn't call them that...maybe name them "self-propogating scripts" or something to that effect. you can do system checks, script updates, security monitoring, all with viruses.

they can be a very positive tool.

now, if somebody wanted to use the information in a bad/illegal way....if they're just starting coding, they won't last much longer than a few minutes.

I think this topic has switched from viruses to general programming. I would like to keep it that way. I do not want to encourage or condone virus writing in any way shape or form.

alrighty.

if you're really interested in 'pursuing' the virus and security topic...check out the University of Calgary. they offer a virus and malware course(s) in their computer degree program. at least, they are offering a learning place where you can be monitored...and it's disconnected from the "outside" world.

Discussing programming is fine....


Discussing writing viruses and such is NOT an area that is going to be allowed here. Motherboards.org does not condone writing virus and other malicuos code...
