Hacker Indicted In France For Publishing Exploits

RubiCon Stops 100% of unknown viruses? (561 comments)

Umm, you can't do that - I think I first saw the relevant paradox in Ralf Burger's book on viruses and it goes something like this: Say you've got some blackbox routine called is_a_virus() that does just what these guys claim; all you do is build it into a virus like so:

if ( is_a_virus(me) ) { do_nothing() } else { replicate() }
So, if you're a virus, you're not a virus - but if you're not, you are. Reductio ad absurdum, anyone?

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
