guys do not the virus on your own computer mostly for harmful viruses

FilipK5 (author)2015-04-22

Nice trick, but i think most people will not press button after last line, so they will not see data "erasing". Is it possible to change the end, so that you don't have to press any button, but that it starts with flashing screen like 3 seconds (that is enough time to read it I think) after last lines:

echo ACTIVATING VIRUS.....

echo VIRUS ACTIVATED!!!!

Sorry because of my bad english. I hope you understood my question. I think the trick will be much more effective, because i think most people will just exit the program instead of pressing button.

if you change the 2 then you can set different delays,

it will be in miliseconds

I used this on a game, This is what I used: /e !keybind m :alert all YOU HAVE A VIRUS ON YOUR COMPUTER... CONTACTING ANTI-VIRUS.... DO YOU WANT TO DELETE VIRUS?

tdc2202 (author)2013-03-17

Did you know that someone has made a money making scam of this "fake virus"? They are sending people to a local pharmacy or Wall Mart to pay cash for a "money pack", thereby getting $200 or $300 each! Of course, once the person has paid the cash and gotten a special "code", it doesn't fix the problem! I know of 2 people in my town who got scammed with this! I think it is criminal and should be prosecuted.

RW4 (author)tdc22022015-01-07

I think you are mistaking this for something else. This file opens a prompt that displays text. That is all. Not a virus by far lol

Hi, I am currently learning about security and protection and I have taken a pair of introductory programming courses. Although I haven't learned every language, I understanding the logic well enough for me to adapt. Anyway, my reason for being here is that I am in a "vigilante" type mood because of the a-holes that @tdc2202 was talking about. I can't even count how many calls and or stupid emails claiming they are from the federal government or some law firm and that if I don't respond and pay money, that I'm going to go to jail. Common sense will usually tell you if it is a scam. Unfortunately, there are those that get caught up and end up loosing lots of money. Anyway, what I'm trying to get at is why can't someone just create a simple virus that can be disguised as an "accounts and passwords" file to entice the scammers to open it and get a taste of their own medicine sort of speak. After all, they are using the little knowledge they have about technology against innocent hard working people. Why can't we turn the tables around fire back? Any suggestions to add?

RitvikM (author)2014-12-24

guys can anybody help me in making a prank virus using batch so that the person cannot close the command prompt window until he has gone thru the whole coade

ncooper (author)2009-04-29

maybe I'm not understanding the steps... I made a new text document(thanks to notepad) then copied and pasted the code and then saved it as VIRUS.BAT. So it's saved, I closed it and double clicked on it to run and nothing, it just opened the notepad reader, not the cmd prompt window, what step may I be missing or not understanding?

Craig Bird (author)ncooper2012-11-22

click start and type or look for "run" in run type "CMD" then copy this code and after look on your desktop for a a file called fakevirus.bat then run fakevirus,bat



cd %homedrive%\Users\%username%\Desktop
del fakevirus.bat /q

echo @echo off >>fakevirus.bat
echo title VIRUS >>fakevirus.bat
echo color 06 >>fakevirus.bat

echo echo YOU HAVE A VIRUS ON YOUR COMPUTER >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat

ReeceLV (author)ncooper2010-04-02

When you saved it, did you Choose ALL Files, and not Text Documents (*.txt)?
eg.

File Name:                               VIRUS.bat
Save as type:                           All Files

I know its not very clear, but maybe you can understand my gibberish

sam567 (author)ncooper2009-07-11

@ncooper it is something to do with your system settings there is videos on youtubes just google how to create a batch file and things should come up, good luck Sam

mfrancis (author)2009-03-11

where do you find the bat file?

The quickest way is to save the .bat file to your desktop.

or copy this code into the cmd prompt box and it will make the file you need on your desktop,after it has made the file run "fakevirus.bat"


cd %homedrive%\Users\%username%\Desktop
del fakevirus.bat /q

echo @echo off >>fakevirus.bat
echo title VIRUS >>fakevirus.bat
echo color 06 >>fakevirus.bat

echo echo YOU HAVE A VIRUS ON YOUR COMPUTER >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo CONTACTING ANTI-VIRUS.... >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo DO YOU WANT TO DELETE VIRUS? >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACCESS DENIED >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo ACTIVATING VIRUS..... >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo VIRUS ACTIVATED!!!!>>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo :1 >>fakevirus.bat
echo dir/s >>fakevirus.bat
echo goto 1 >>fakevirus.bat

sam234 (author)mfrancis2009-03-15

mfrancis here is a simple way of doing it 1.Create a new TEXT document 2.Name it whatever you want then .BAT at the end that is how you get a .bat file :)

Craig Bird (author)sam2342012-11-22

or open cmd prompt and type or copy the following:

cd %homedrive%\Users\%username%\Desktop
del fakevirus.bat /q

echo @echo off >>fakevirus.bat
echo title VIRUS >>fakevirus.bat
echo color 06 >>fakevirus.bat

echo YOU HAVE A VIRUS ON YOUR COMPUTER >>fakevirus.bat
echo pause >>fakevirus.bat
echo echo CONTACTING ANTI-VIRUS.... >>fakevirus.bat

cerebrlasassn (author)sam5672009-11-22

 u know how 2 make a file like this that is not an executable file? my email wont let me send it cuz its executable. im trying to get some guy to stop emailing me and i figure if i can do something like this to him it might scare him away!  or if you have something else i can do to get him off my back that would be great! doesnt have to be this, anything to get him to not send an email to me again..thanks

Craig Bird (author)cerebrlasassn2012-11-22

but want it to actually restart your computer, not shut it down. at the moment it does nothing but close the command window that pops up when you run it. it would be much appreciated if some help could be given on this. it is mainly the end part im having troubles with.

Like this?:

so what is it supposed to do anyways?

skyfaller (author)2011-02-18

If you do this, end it with .BAT , remember the capitals.

XOIIO (author)2009-12-23

Sorry, but his isn't very realistic, I don't think many people would fall for it. Your telling the user not to contact antivirus, and viruses run silently. Plus
If something opened up from a file I would just check in task manager for any batch files. (Shit I'm really a geek) Maybe people would believe it.

XOIIO (author)knexguy922010-12-21

LOL what happened?

It looks near the end that is disables the mouse and keyboard, it seems like it could be modified into a prank that would disable the mouse randomly, something like

@echo off
:LOOP
ping localhost -n =%random%%100+1
rundll32.exe mouse, disable
ping localhost -n 25 >nul
rundll32.exe mouse, enable
GOTO LOOP

and run with a ghost vbs script. What do you think?

XOIIO (author)XOIIO2010-12-21

Just tried in on virtual XP, cant quite get the random number to work... also says that it cant load the mouse?

any help with isolating the mouse/ keyboard disabling?

knexguy92 (author)XOIIO2010-12-26

I WOULD HELP YOU BUT 1 THING
I don't know what virtual xp is
also i'm not such a good coder, so... yeah
I LIKE MOULDY BABY FOOD LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
ONE TIP THOUGH
if it can't load the mouse.....


plug the mouse in!!!!!!!!

How would you stop this? (without using remote desktop etc.)

eoscondor (author)itzepiic2010-09-24

start in safe mode and delete from you startup folder

You're right. Strt [sic] in safe mode!

you might be able to use a linux boot disk as well (im not saying to try it)

sinxxx (author)alltootechnical2010-06-20

is that true? what is the meaning of (assoc.)?

alltootechnical (author)sinxxx2010-06-22

Yes, it's a command in batch that alters file associations. It's very dangerous to use this command. I've tried to run it on a VPC and it really screwed up teh VPC. See for yourself

XOIIO (author)alltootechnical2010-04-23

I would just use the remote desktop app on my ipod, and go into task manager and shut down and batch files.

alltootechnical (author)XOIIO2010-04-26

IS THAT POSSIBLE? What iPod?

XOIIO (author)alltootechnical2010-04-26

There are ots of apps that yo download, but you need to be on the same wifi network and they suck. Teamviewer is free, works on mac, pc, and ipod and you can set it up so that you dont need to confirm on your pc. Free for any version, as long as it isnt commercial use.
