Summary : Most virus have a hard coded way of interacting with networks and do not have the
ability to find and exploit new ways of attacking the hosts and speaking between each
other, thus forming a formidable network of learning and mutation.Most virus have a hard coded way of interacting with networks and vulnerabilities and do
not have the ability to find and exploit configuration weaknesses and vulnerabilities,
they also do not speak against each other or mutate based on each other. This new kind
of virus is able to discern configuration weaknesses, find bugs and exploit them and talk
to each other thus a bug found by one virus gives the opportunity to all other mutations to
execute and exploit the bug giving a more active way of infiltrating networks. This way a
virus can become more than a nuisance to enter the realm of being something between a weapon
and a plague.
