is a computer virus
resource site; "VX
" stands for V
change. The URL
s (or URI
VX Heavens went online on November 1, 1999
. It has a library of articles, texts, and interviews relating to virus
es and anti-virus
tools, as well as complete copies of some computer crime
laws. It has an often-updated news section with a list of the current top 20 viruses in the world. There are also many binaries
, including actual viruses, virus creation tools, and polymorphic engines
. The source code
for all of the viruses is also provided.
Some sections of text, mostly the home page, are in slightly disjointed English, but it's really not distracting. There are a number of interesting drawings throughout the site, which are black on a light tan background. They're pretty surreal
and artistic for a site primarily about viruses.
Note: A lot of things on VX Heavens detail activities which could be illegal. They don't condone breaking the law, and neither do I.
Also: The real plural of "virus" is "viruses", not "virii". It's a common mistake. Read the plural of virus for more info.
