This is a question for anybody here : has anyone ever heard of "Colossus" worm, virus, trojan?
I own a small computer repair business, and a customer (man- late 20's to 30ish) came in claiming he had written a virus called "Colossus". He said this was a long time ago, and he spoke of Win98 and earlier. He doesn't seem old enough.
He also claimed to shut down an internet cafe with "Code he'd written". Probably script kiddie stuff. He also wanted a copy of DOS to dual boot with win 7.? I ask him why not just use one of the many Linux OS's out there, and he looked confused & unaware.
I can build and repair most computers, but I know nothing of coding or computer languages, other than a bit of command line for net\working and a few linux commands. I guess I can understand a "programmer" to not know much about the workings of a home computer.
BUT - I think this guy is Full of something. Any thoughts from the peanut gallery?
