The Little Black Book of Computer Viruses
Volume One:
The Basic Technology
Mark A. Ludwig


The Little Black Book of Computer Viruses has seen five
good years in print. In those five years it has opened a door to
seriously ask the question whether it is better to make technical
information about computer viruses known or not.
When I wrote it, it was largely an experiment. I had no idea
what would happen. Would people take the viruses it contained and
rewrite them to make all kinds of horrificly destructive viruses? Or
would they by and large be used responsibly? At the time I wrote,
no anti-virus people would even talk to me, and what I could find
in print on the subject was largely unimpressive from a factual
standpoint—lots of hype and fear-mongering, but very little solid
research that would shed some light on what might happen if I
released this book. Being a freedom loving and knowledge seeking
American, I decided to go ahead and do it—write the book and get
it in print. And I decided that if people did not use it responsibly, I
would withdraw it.
Five years later, I have to say that I firmly believe the book
has done a lot more good than harm.
On the positive side, lots and lots of people who desper-
ately need this kind of information—people who are responsible
for keeping viruses off of computers—have now been able to get
it. While individual users who have limited contact with other
computer users may be able to successfully protect themselves with
an off-the-shelf anti-virus, experience seems to be proving that such
is not the case when one starts looking at the network with 10,000
