    Police say the viruses run without the knowledge of the computer owner and allow criminals to access any stored private and commercial information.
    The days of writing malware for no purpose other than a kind of vandalism seems long past. These days malicious software is written to make money. The last thing the writer wants to do is harm your machine, your computer is their shop, it is how they make their money. They want to install advertising applications on your system, for which they get well paid, anywhere from $.10 to $0.50 per installation. In some more malicious cases, they want to use your system as a mail server to send out spam e-mail. In the worst case, they want to harvest your personal information, such as credit card numbers, banking passwords etc. But in the end it is about making money, and making money from your machine. Malware authors of this decade don't want to damage your system, that would be like a farmer burning his fields.

    yes that what people do that but when get caught by cops then it will lose thier PC -- people have to think about kids at school that need to get good education by using PC so best leave our PC and kill off virus, worm... Also univesities need to use it for students to get better education, etc.. it not worth to trying to harm or damage other people as it totally crime that a big red card...

    Honestly, I don't think education (especially someone else's) is anywhere near the top of these people's priority lists... Their main interest is the almighty dollar/euro/whatever currency gets them richer quicker...
