A self-replicating virus: Windows Performance Toolkit: Virus Analysis

A virus is a malicious program (malware) that infects other normal programs and files by injecting its own malicious source code into these files. Learn how a virus not only infects files in the same directory but also replicates when this happens. Find out how the virus only self-replicates when it is executed by a user, which is different from a worm that requires no user interaction to spread.
