Graduating in June with a BA in Computer Forensics and Network Security. I have a FT job that has gotten me by for the last 3.5 yrs and do tech support.
Anyways I work with a total of 5 people and two of them are computer nerds. You know the type, talk about the fastest processors or new video cards, new laptop out with 3D capability.
Anyways one of them today came and spoke to me about a "virus" he and his friend made a few yrs ago. It's funny when I talk about network Security stuff in detail he has the "deer in the headlights look". Anyways he says that he made a virus that when the computer boots the virus literally shuts the power supply off.
I just nod my head and say "ah that's cool dude" because I don't believe him that he has the know how to make a virus except maybe an STD...LOL.
Anyways my question is: Can you make a virus that would do this, shutting the P/S off when the computer boots.
My first assumption is it's possible I suppose. But I doubt this guy and his track record of making complete BS stories up is pretty high, usually we just laugh at his numerous weird stories.
